: EnglishShort Description
: Managers are expected to adhere to much different federal, state,county, and local laws that pertain to how companies recruit, hire, train, promote, terminate, and treat their workers. The general effect of all these laws is that employers are not allowed to discriminate in employment decisions on the basis of an applicant’s membership in a protected class. HR professionals and line managers need to ensure the workplace is in compliance with rules and laws related to worker safety, and that it is free of employment discrimination and sexual harassment. Human Resource Management is responsible for finding, developing, and keeping the right people needed for a qualified work force; but they must do so while following many federal, state, and local employment regulations. This course discusses the legal human resource environment that impacts all managers within a company.Instructor Description
