Supervisors, managers and executives have the most day-to-day interaction with employees, but often know the least about employment laws. This places a significant amount of a company’s legal liability in the hands of those least prepared for it. The best way to minimize that liability is to give managers, supervisors and executives the information they need to understand and make everyday employment decisions. This fast-paced course is filled with realistic scenarios to help participants improve their employee relations skills. Appropriate for employers with 15 or more employees.
