SESSION TITLE:  A Supervisor’s Guide To Promoting Diversity And Preventing Unlawful Harassment, Discrimination And Retaliation

SESSION DESCRIPTION: Time and again, organizations learnundefinedoften too lateundefinedthat the failure of a manager or supervisor to recognize basic employment law principles from the beginning leads to increased employee complaints reduced productivity and, inevitably, litigation. Whether you are a seasoned veteran who has never been trained on legal responsibilities, a newly promoted manager or a professional challenged by the delicate balance between leadership and lawful workplace practices, this focused program can prove essential to your success and the well-being of your organization.

Recognizing that prevention practices, legal compliance and proper response procedures are paramount in today’s litigious business environment, this seminar will equip managers and supervisors with a solid foundation in employment law practices that affect employee relations throughout the work cycle. The focus is on providing developing leaders with a quick, first step introduction to the key employment laws that govern their managerial conduct and decisions. We will also examine how misconduct can create organizational and individual liability.
