This seminar is designed for human resource and payroll professionals, benefit administrators, business owners and managers.
In today’s litigious society, human resources professionals, business owners, managers, and supervisors must be familiar with the various aspects of employment law. The failure to become familiar with these laws can dramatically increase the number and costs of complaints and lawsuits that are filed against the employer. The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals recently held that failure to train in employment related Civil Rights Law is “an extraordinary mistake... resulting in willful negligence” Knowing the law and fully complying with it can be the difference between successfully resolving an employment dispute and litigating that dispute. This seminar was designed for the working professional to assist them in full and cooperative compliance with the myriad of employment laws that companies must comply with.
