Promotions from Within: A Potential Source of Liability Webinar
Time: 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST
Duration: 60 Minutes
Instructor: William Mack Copeland
In this webinar the speaker will review the key legal areas that affect managing employees and provide insight into what the new manager should know.
Most of the hospitals reward good job performance with a promotion. Unfortunately, being a good employee does not always mean the person will be a good manager. Promoting employees not trained in management and employee relations can be a source of liability for hospitals.
Managing people is an art, and not everyone is a good manager. Motivating employees to obtain optimal job performance by staying in compliance with the law and policy is not easy. It is very important that new managers must gain job training regarding the hospital´s policies and various employment laws before assigning a new position. Consistency is very important and the new manager must know the hospital´s policies and how they have been applied to others so that consistency could be maintained. Managers need to find a middle ground between being too punitive or too lax with employees because either extreme can cause problems. From a legal perspective, liability can result where an untrained manager lacks knowledge in certain legal areas.
Why Should you Attend:
Promoting employees from within is risky. If it is not handled properly it could result in potential legal liability. You should attend this online training session to gain an understanding of what should be accomplished when promoting current employees to management or supervisory positions where they will have responsibility for managing employees.
Objectives of the Presentation:
To provide the attendee with an understanding of how to develop a good management training program that provides the knowledge to handle employees, including a review of key legal areas.
