DescriptionUnderstand the legal aspects of human resources
Amongst many other responsibilities, HR is charged with keeping the employer out of court. Because employment laws are complex and constantly changing, compliance can be difficult for even the most experienced of professionals. To make matters worse, HR employees can be individually sued for their actions and inactions. As a result, it is critical to understand not only what employment laws may apply to your workplace, but also how those laws impact your day-to-day decision making. In this session we'll cover the employment laws and best practices that HR needs to know.

- Understand "at-will" employment and the surprisingly low thresholds for employees to sue
