Description

Businesses and nonprofits today face an explosion of EEOC actions and employment litigation that can threaten the organization’s financial stability as well as its reputation. This course will update you on, and provide tips about mitigating exposure for, the key employment risks that every employer faces: cyber issues such as social media, device and internet use, wrongful termination, retaliation, whistleblowers, all types of discrimination and harassment, workplace safety, wage and hour laws, immigration issues, laws such as the FMLA, ADA, HIPAA, COBRA, FLSA, and more. Know how to react to developing employment issues, understand recent trends in employment claims, and arm yourself with the knowledge and assessment tools that can make a difference for your employer or your clients.

Objectives

  • Measure risk in the primary areas of employment exposures
  • Determine if your organization is current and compliant in cyber-related issues affecting websites, devices, social media, and more

  • Using mediation and arbitration to resolve employment disputes
  • Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, HIPAA, COBRA, ERISA, and more
