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 introduce supervisors and managers to the core employment law principles and offer practical solutions to dealing with common employee issues.
This program is presented by partner Suzanne King.
