Recognizing the challenges involved with scheduling in-person training during the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering Managing Employees 101 in a two-part virtual series. We will not be offering an in-person program in 2020. However, we will offer the series twice – once in the summer and once in September. Each series has two sessions. This program is designed specifically for supervisors and managers.

Managing Employees 101

State and federal employment laws are increasingly complex. Whether you are managing an employee with a serious attendance problem, or dealing with an employee who is missing deadlines and seems disengaged at work, or considering a request for a disability or religious accommodation, the legal issues are complicated and finding a solution often requires that you know something about the law. Unfortunately, all too often, front line managers and supervisors don't know enough about the law to stay out of trouble.

The first part of the two-part series provides an introduction to the most important legal obligations managers and supervisors need to understand to manage employees effectively and lawfully. The second part of the series focuses on how to manage employees, emphasizing the importance of clear communication, constructive feedback, and performance improvement techniques. The program is designed to offer practical solutions to assist supervisors and managers in dealing with common employee issues.

The program is presented by partner Suzanne King.
