Overview
Are you at risk for non-compliance? Is your company a lawsuit waiting to happen? This webinar will focus on how much of what Human Resources training professionals do involves legal compliance training, litigation avoidance and ensuring that employee rights are not violated. 
Yet, employment laws and regulations are not only confusing, they’re constantly changing. Still, ignorance is not a defense and it is important for everyone involved to have an understanding of these issues.

Why Should You Attend

Employment lawsuits along with federal and state audit activity are on the rise. Last year, the EEOC enforcement collected $372.1 million in monetary damages, the highest recovery in agency history. Equally as noteworthy, for the last three years, the EEOC reported a record number of claims filed by employees.
When employers are not properly prepared for workplace issues, companies could face discrimination suits, litigation, settlements, legal fees, unplanned expenses, employee turnover, morale issues, and possible negative community image issues. 
This webinar will provide a quick overview to assist professionals in maintaining employment law compliance as well as litigation avoidance tips.
Be it a small company or a large corporation, possessing knowledge of employment laws and HR practices is essential for business success. The number of employment laws/issues you have to be aware of can be overwhelming. 
Join us as we discuss how to deal with confusing, tough, and touchy human resource situations and how to apply employment laws correctly.
