It is critical to ensure that managers and supervisors understand how to be certain that day-to-day decisions do not violate the law or ethical standards. To mitigate civil penalties and criminal liability, employers must have standards and procedures in place to prevent and detect wrongdoing, including mandatory training for managers and supervisors.  How do performance evaluations, workplace conflicts, pay and promotion practices, and even job interviews end up sparking lawsuits? Even unfounded legal claims distract from organizational goals. This course introduces legal standards central to the HR function and essential recordkeeping and compliance practices to minimize risk. Explore racial, religious, gender, and disability discrimination, harassment, leave policies, recordkeeping, required accommodations, workplace investigations, retaliation claims, termination procedures, DOL and EEOC, and OSHA enforcement mechanisms. Become proficient at legal issue spotting and discuss possible interventions and practical solutions. Evolving legal standards and social media, sexual identity, and privacy rights will also be discussed. Textbook optional.
You must attend 70% of all scheduled class hours, in addition to completing any other requirements set by the instructor, in order to pass the class and be awarded CEUs and a Certificate of Completion. This program is valid for 12 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.
