The coronavirus has changed how we live, how we work and how we learn. And IAML is changing with the times, too. While we expect to continue to offer our traditional seminars at locations around the country when it is safe to do so, we are proud to announce that our programs are now available in a new virtual format.
IAML’s live instructor-led, virtual training provides access to the most current and practically-oriented programs in a convenient, flexible and cost-effective delivery system. While all of IAML’s programs will be available very soon in a virtual format, the two programs below are currently available.
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. This program is divided into two separate blocks of instruction. You can choose to attend a single block or both. To earn the Certificate in Essentials of Human Resource Management, you must complete both blocks within a two year period.
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.
This seminar is designed as a timely, thorough and highly enjoyable update which analyzes sophisticated, up-to-the-minute issues and developments along with their real-world impact. The seminar explores the highly complex benefits challenges you face and provides techniques for managing and solving the problems, liabilities and contradictions they can pose. A talented team of attorneys will present these dynamic seminars.
