Human Resources Law: 2011 Update Audio
1-Hour CareerTrack Audio Conference
From Class Action lawsuits and hints of sexual
harassment to regulations for interviewing and hiring, there's no end to the
legal pitfalls HR professionals face every day. If you're unfamiliar with even
the newest rules and regulations, you and your organization could face costly
fines and extensive litigation. Do you have the knowledge and know-how to
confidently and legally handle the challenges and gray areas you face in HR law?
As an HR professional, you must not only successfully handle the day-to-day
duties of your HR department; you must also have a working knowledge of
employment law, new hiring trends, and benefits management. With all of the
legal changes, case law, and provisional updates to these extensive rules and
regulations, it's quite the challenge to keep up with it all. In order to stay
on top of legal changes, you must be proactive and should attend this
information-packed one hour audio conference!
Read the scenarios below to test your knowledge of just a few of the most
recent HR law disputes. Are you confident that you can resolve similar
situations and keep your company out of legal hot water?
- An employee in your publicly traded company posts on a social networking
site that "something really big is going to happen tomorrow" at work and "it's
going to be a profitable New Year." Is this actionable by the employer or
simply an act of free speech made during an employee's free time?
- A prospective employee voluntarily discloses he has cancer during his
interview and states that he can still meet the attendance requirements of the
job. He mentions he is in chemotherapy. In light of the expanded ADAAA, what
can you say? What can't you say? What could be written in the job description
that would keep you on track and legally compliant in your search for the most
- You have two employees who perform the same job function. One employee is
a man; the other is a woman. The direct supervisor feels the male employee
"has gone above and beyond" and has "exceeded expectations" in his job
performance this year. The supervisor wants to give the male a raise next
year. What documentation should be in place to reward employees, support
compensation decisions, and protect employers from wage-based discrimination
under the Ledbetter Act of 2009?
If you answered "I'm not sure" or "I
don't know" to even one question, then you need to attend this program to keep
yourself and your organization out of legal trouble. This powerful 1-hour audio
conference will help you carefully examine your HR policies and procedures to
ensure consistency with the comprehensive list of rules and regulations. You'll
gain a better understanding of recent updates and changes to the ADAAA, FMLA,
social media legalities, and much more. This worthwhile investment could end up
saving you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Don't just assume that what you've learned in the past will keep you
compliant in the future. Simply "knowing enough to get by" can be a recipe for
disaster. Get a true understanding of HR law and be confident that your
organization and its policies are fair, compliant, and consistent.
