Legal Survival Skills for the Modern Manager

 
 
 

EEOC compliance and employment law basics in one easy-to-watch employment law training course.

It's a challenge to be a supervisor these days. You've got to get the job done—often with fewer employees and a tighter budget. Plus, you're expected to know exactly what to do or say every time a "people problem" comes up. This manager and supervisor training video was created to help you find your way through the maze of employment laws and regulations, while at the same time maximizing the performance of your workers.

This employment law video goes behind the scenes when a new manager takes over a team in the middle of an important project. Our narrator, Alan Levins, an Employment Law Attorney with Littler Mendelson PC, The National Employment and Labor Law Firm®, explains critical legal issues as you witness this manager's struggle to win the respect and cooperation of her sometimes unruly crew.

Key learning points include:
  • 12 basic employment law issues that every manager needs to understand
  • Legal and effective performance management, discipline and termination.
  • Covers EEOC compliance, FMLA basics, ADA and more

Knowledge of employment law, as well as solid principles of people management, constitute basic survival training for every supervisor. While each day brings new challenges, there are actions you can take not only to survive, but to thrive, in the modern workplace.

Leaders, managers and supervisors who watch this video will learn how to:
  • Communicate policies and procedures
  • Classify employees under Wage and Hour laws
  • Limit use of electronic resources
  • Know the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Create and use job descriptions
  • Evaluate employee performance
  • Discipline properly
  • Terminate legally
  • Avoid discrimination
  • Prevent harassment
  • Communicate effectively

Reviews

"We have been pleased with the quality of your videos. They are current and we can find something pertinent to our annual supervisor training. This is the 3rd video we’ve purchased for our annual department supervisor training/retreat. We look forward to learning something new that will help our supervisors manage our facilities management department."Carolyn Longwater

"Your videos have many good attributes: they are relevant, very reasonably priced, good length (long enough to inform, but short enough to work into a meeting without taking up all the allotted time) and nicely produced (believable actors, not "cheesy")."Beth Williams
