HR Law - Human Resources Training Seminar

Program Description:

What if the only thing standing between your company and a devastating lawsuit is ...

  • That new HR assistant you just hired? Or ...
  • That manager who “doesn’t have time” for your training sessions? Or ...
  • An overworked HR staff member who overlooks an obscure wrinkle in an important federal law?

Are you 100 percent sure they can handle EVERY situation that comes their way? Truth is, there are 1,001 different scenarios going on throughout your company every day that impact employment law, benefits administration, compensation, and even fringe benefits.

And it only takes one mistake – however unintentional – to cause significant damage to your company’s ability to do business. Companies shell out an average of $750,000 in damages for wrongful termination suits that they lose! Even more sobering … more and more companies are losing these suits each year.

Which makes it more important than ever for your HR staff (and other managers and supervisors in your company) to possess a keen working knowledge of the fundamentals of HR law. But where can you get this training quickly, easily – and accurately?

Come to this seminar. In just one day, we’ll cover the basics of HR law in a fastpaced, plain-English way that will provide a whole new level of understanding to anyone who has to deal with the thousands of facets of employment law.


It's HR 101 — and we take that as a BIG compliment!

Our previous attendees call this course, "HR 101" and they say it with a smile! It's a must-have foundation of knowledge everyone needs in today's complex business world. We cover everything from ADA ... to FLSA ... to fringe benefits, but we don't go in-depth into the tiny nuances of each law.

Instead, participants learn the basics of what the law means ... to whom the law applies ... and which agency enforces the law. Plus, they’ll return to the office armed with resources of information that they can immediately access when they need it. What you’ll have after this powerful session are employees who know the magnitude of HR law ... can converse with any employee about the issues safely ... and a dramatically reduced threat of mistakes, blunders, and missteps due to ignorance that can land you and your company in hot water.

What You'll Learn in this HR Law Seminar:

Get up-to-date on the most critical areas of HR law, including:

  • FMLA
  • ADA
  • FLSA
  • Wage garnishment
