Supervisors and managers must understand the basics of employment laws and regulations when dealing with employees, but few have received training in these areas. This workshop will look at what you need to know to avoid legal and practical issues and to meet your obligations to your employers. It also will assist you in working collaboratively with Human Resources. The topics covered include NH and federal discrimination laws; legal issues to avoid when interviewing, hiring and discharging employees; how to deal with a disabled employee; identifying basic FMLA issues; basic concepts in NH and federal wage and hour laws; and identifying and avoiding harassment problems. This workshop can also assist individuals just entering or desiring to enter the field of HR.
(This is part of the Human Resources Management Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
