Employment Law for Managers Webinar
A Live, Online Class Consisting of Two Sessions
1st Half: Tues, October 26
2nd Half: Wed, October 27
2:00 to 3:30 pm each day.
Instructor: Jonathan Driggs, Attorney at Law
An employment law attorney with nearly 30 years of experience–including three years with the Utah Labor Commission

Reduce Your Liability:
Supervisors, managers, and executives have the most day-to-day interaction with employees, yet they usually know the least about employment laws. This results in a tremendous amount of your company’s legal liability in the hands of the uninformed. The best way to reduce a company’s liability risk is to educate those who need it the most: supervisors, managers, and executives.
The Employment Law for Managers Seminar (ELMS) is specially designed to help non-H.R. managers know how to comply with the law while still meeting business objectives. The importance of developing effective communication and leadership skills is also emphasized.
Some of the topics included in ELMS are:

• Understanding at-will employment and its exceptions
• Understanding managerial agency (the manager’s duty to report potential legal violations to the company)
• How to avoid creating appearances of discrimination while managing employees
• How to manage retaliation risks
• How to conduct effective job interviews that are legally compliant
• How to prevent and/or respond to sexual harassment complaints
• How to respond to employee poor performance or misconduct in an effective and legal manner­including how to create documentation (notes and corrective actions) and termination of employment decisions
• How to accommodate disabled employees under the Americans with Disabilities Act while ensuring satisfactory job performance
• How to manage employees who are taking leave under the Family & Medical Leave Act
• And much more!

Materials:
Each participant will receive, via email, a 90-page seminar manual containing reader-friendly summaries of the laws applicable to managing employees.

Real-Time Live Online Learning:
Participants log on remotely and are able to be taught, ask questions of the instructor, and go through the presentation similar to classroom training. We will be using Zoom as the platform to conduct the training. Participants will need a device connected to the Internet (Computer, Tablet, or Smartphone) with either an internal or external speaker. To participate further a camera and microphone would be helpful. Note: with Zoom a phone can also be used for the audio.

About the Presenter:
For over twenty years, Jonathan has been presenting a popular series of employment law-related seminars for major corporations throughout the country. He is known for his ability to provide clear and concise explanations of the material and for his engaging, humor-filled presentation style.

Registration:

The published price is $160.00 per person.

Custom Fit Price is $96.00 per person.
