Roadmap to Advanced Human Resources and Employment Law Essentials
2017 comes in with a lot of uncertainties. With a new administration in the white house, employers can expect drastic change, which may affect and impact your organization. Additionally, employment lawsuits are on the rise. Last year, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforcement collected $372.1 million in monetary damages, the highest recovery in agency history. Also, for the last three years, the EEOC reported a record high number of claims filed by employees.
When employers are not properly prepared for workplace issues, companies could face discrimination suits, litigation, settlements, lawyer fees, unplanned expenses, employee turnover, morale issues, and possible negative community image. This Advanced Human Resources and Employment Law Seminar will assist companies in being prepared for the new administration, maintaining employment law compliance, as well as litigation avoidance.
Whether you are in a medium sized company or a large corporation, possessing knowledge of employment laws and HR practices are essential to business success. The number of employment laws/issues you have to be aware of can be overwhelming. In this seminar, you will learn how to deal with confusing human resource situations and how to apply employment laws correctly.
