Being a manager is more than just a job title – it’s a responsibility. Organizations trust managers to uphold policies, support employees and set an example for everyone to follow. To effectively carry out these responsibilities, managers need to know certain legal basics.

Employment Law for Managers – Part 1 provides essential guidance on discrimination and harassment, wage and hour law, FMLA and workplace safety. Managers will learn the foundations and engage with real-world scenarios and interactive exercises to reinforce fundamentals.

Effective management means guiding employees, as well as anticipating and spotting issues in the workplace – and that starts with understanding important workplace regulations.
