Mastering the Employment LawsOct 23, 2023
HR - you’re doing it all. Hiring, benefits, payroll, compliance, DEI, equal pay initiatives, changing laws for non-competes, pumping at work, etc… You might know the laws, but will management get the necessary information to you so you can make the right decisions?
If the managers aren’t trained on the laws, then much of your hard work and efforts will fall flat.
For most businesses, managers are on the front lines dealing with employee performance, time off, insubordination, etc. If they don’t know to send certain issues up the chain of command, the message will never get to the person who needs to receive it.
For example, the person who advises of a mental health issue and needs time off (possibly under the ADA) may be told by a manager he needs to work in person or face termination.
This is potentially illegal, but the manager doesn’t know it.
Manager decisions can create legal liability for a company.
If the manager hasn’t been trained to “issue spot” potential violations of employment laws, the company could be on the hook.
Management teams do not have to be experts in employment law, but need to know the basics so they can take appropriate actions.
Even if you have an in house HR Director within your organization, those individuals need to stay up to date on the employment laws.
