HR Basic Training Session is FULL

The Alphabet Soup of Legal Compliance  

***Note, that this session is intended for new HR practitioners (i.e. you’ve joined the profession within the last couple of years).  

HR Basic Training – Fourth Module. Rounding out our boot camp is a dive into the alphabet soup of employment law compliance. Hannah Wurgaft will take you on a journey through the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and the Fair Labor Standards Act – Wage and Hour (FLSA). In addition to receiving a package of background information on these laws, you will follow three case studies that will help you to think like an employment lawyer when the inevitable challenges come your way. The first will involve a request for an accommodation under the ADA. Next up are some interesting calculations of how to use FMLA time. Followed by an overtime pay challenge. And, as a bonus, you get to do all of this without paying law school tuition.
