Being a manager is more than just having a job title. It is a responsibility. Managers are entrusted to uphold policies, support employees and set an example for doing business the right way. That’s why they need to know certain legal basics.

Employment Law for Managers – Part 1 provides essential knowledge in key areas of the law, including harassment and discrimination, workplace violence and abusive conduct, wage and hour law, and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Real-world scenarios and exercises help managers apply key points of these laws to the workplace.

Effective managers know how to guide employees and spot important issues in the workplace. It all starts with a basic understanding of important workplace regulations.
