Supervisors and HR: What They Don’t Know CAN Hurt You

By Rudman Winchell Attorney

A supervisor’s actions toward employees can subject an employer to liability for employment-related claims, often at significant cost. Therefore, it is essential that supervisors are trained properly to understand their obligations and act accordingly. At the very least, supervisors must have a basic awareness of many employment laws as well as the employer’s own policies.

This SkillBuilder is designed to provide guidance on training supervisors by focusing on the types of employment claims that arise most often and discussing the proper responses and action required of a supervisor. We will do this through real-life examples and hypotheticals.

This SkillBuilder will include:
