Training Course Details

Managing HR Compliance in a Department of One

Some companies have an entire HR department staffed by several well-trained and knowledgeable HR professionals to manage compliance issues, keep paperwork in order, and help supervisors deal with employee issues. What if it's just you? And what if your main job is doing something completely different, like accounting, finance or general operations? You may not know what you don't know regarding employment law and regulations. Keep your company out of hot water by learning more about compliance with the FLSA, FMLA, ADA, Workers' Compensation laws, and record retention rules. We also cover best practices in recruiting, managing and paying overtime, and employee handbooks.
