Did you know that you can go to jail for not following basic employment law? It happened in the summer of 2023. While this is a rare occurrence (and happened because they 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 six major employment laws that every manager needs to know.
