The Virtual Certificate in Essentials of Human Resource Management Seminar provides comprehensive and practical coverage of many important aspects of human resource work. The objective of the program is to help participants who are new to the human resources field immediately become more effective on the job, while helping them prepare for greater responsibilities.  

Block 1 covers all the laws that apply in the workplace, from the hiring process to termination and everything in between.  Topics include all federal discrimination laws, accommodation obligations, labor standards laws including FMLA and FLSA, drug and alcohol policy and testing issues and privacy issues. The emphasis in Block 1 is on recognizing, assessing and managing legal risks with employees.

In block 2, through a Strategic Planning Case Study, participants will learn to assist in the development of their own organization’s Strategic Human Resources Plan through the use of systematic processes and HR metrics.  In addition, Block 2 will cover staffing and retention, talent management, performance management, development, compensation and benefits, risk management and worker protection.

A lawfully conducted investigation can potentially save millions of dollars in litigation costs and lost productivity.  In addition a proper investigation can nip workplace problems in the bud; keeping businesses operating smoothly—and out of the courtroom.  Oftentimes, the outcome of these cases turns on the quality of the investigation that has been conducted. Without the facts, decision-making is flawed and can expose the employer to significant liability.   Over the course of two days, you will actively engage (through role playing) in detailed, “real time” investigations as the attorney-instructor guides you through the investigatory process, giving important pointers and recommendations throughout.  Participants will learn how to handle complaints legally by gaining actual experience in interviewing witnesses and evaluating evidence.  

The Certificate in HR Legal Challenges is conducted live in an instructor-led, virtual environment.  Attendees participate in two, two-hour virtual sessions.  Each registered participant will have access to extensive materials and real-world case studies, online discussion boards with direct access to faculty members and recorded sessions for a full year after completion of the program.  This program features very highly-rated faculty member, Gavin S. Appleby from Littler Mendelson.
