Webinar Price Details


A few weeks ago, a couple of business owners went to  jail because they didn’t follow basic employment law! While this is a rare occurrence (and happened because the ignored a court order–jail isn’t the first stop), getting sued or just treating employees wrong is something that happens all the time.

Managers aren’t expected to be employment law experts–that’s what HR and employment attorneys are for–but they need to know enough not to make a stupid mistake. And they need to recognize when there may be a law at issue so that they can call in an expert.

This webinar covers the basics of 5 major employment laws that every manager needs to know.
