The employment life cycle is a key to organizational success. However, there are many areas where managers could make a mistake, or a decision based on personal preferences or bias, leading to potentially unfair or illegal employment decisions.

Employment Law for Managers – Part 2 guides managers through the stages of interviewing and hiring, performance management and termination of employment. Managers will learn how to keep employment decisions legal and to identify potential pitfalls in employment life cycle management. Real-life scenarios and exercises reinforce key learning points.

Managers who understand the legal requirements of the employment life cycle are in the best position to ensure positive opportunities for recruits, employees and organizations.
