Master FMLA/ADA Certificate Program: Everything You always Wanted to Know

DESCRIPTION
If you supervise at least one employee you need to be knowledgeable with Employment Laws to avoid costly lawsuits, judgements, settlements and to reduce employee complaints and claims.

The amount of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and other claims filed with the EEOC and the Department of Labor continue to rise every year. Now more than ever, HR Professionals, managers and supervisors need to understand and be familiar with employment laws because they share responsibility with HR to ensure their interactions and relations with employees are compliant with federal and state employment laws.

One single lawsuit can have damaging and costly effects to the organization. Violating an employment law is a very high-ticket price to pay. The check that the company will have to write would include a lot of zeros on it. To help our HR Professionals, Managers and Supervisors succeed and to protect our organizations from legal entanglements, we need to train them on essential Employment Laws. This Webinar will provide with the tools you need as a Manager, Supervisor and HR Professional to protect your organizations by complying with Employment Laws and by doing the right thing from a moral, ethical and legal way. Always remember that it is better to deal with issues “in house” rather than in the “courthouse”.

Join America’s leading labor and employment law expert, Elga Lejarza, in this 3-hour long Employment Law Virtual Boot Camp to help your managers make proper employment decisions and avoid lawsuits. The information shared in this course will drive home the importance of following employment and labor laws to your managers and help your company avoid costly litigation.
