Webinar – Guardians at the Gate: Properly Trained Managers are Your First Line of Defense

Join attorneys Shauna Correia and Zack Thompson for a discussion of best practices for training supervisors and reducing the potential for liability.

Summary of Program:
Well-trained supervisors are valuable to companies for their ability to help ensure operations run smoothly. Often, employers focus on productivity and efficiency.  But companies may not be aware that even mid-level supervisors may be deemed agents of the company, when it comes to employment laws that govern the workplace. Untrained supervisors’ actions (or inactions) can result in significant legal consequences for an employer, including in regards to harassment, disability accommodations, leave requests, and wage and hour law enforcement.

Program Highlights:

  • An overview of employment laws that impact the workplace and common mistakes supervisors make when they don’t understand those laws.
  • Tips for effective communication between supervisors and employees, including how to give constructive performance feedback.
  • Common supervisor mistakes
  • The importance of consistent, objective, and timely discipline.
  • Preventing and responding to harassment and other Equal Employment Opportunity complaints.
  • Documentation: The good, the bad and the ugly.
