Training Overview

Recession-proof yourself with an Employment Law Certification.

Businesses face dire consequences when they violate employment laws, including incurring legal fees, settlements, back pay, penalties, and fines. You cannot afford to take these legal, financial, and reputational risks. Fortunately, possessing a comprehensive understanding of employment law not only shields your organization but also enhances your career prospects, making you an invaluable asset in navigating these complex legal waters.

Human resources professionals must understand hundreds of employment laws and regulations. Lingering pandemic effects, heightened compliance scrutiny, and recently revised OSHA rules made the legal requirements even more complex last year. This year has even more new challenges. From hiring through termination, you need to help employees, avoid lawsuits, and protect your organization.

Our Employment Law for HR Certification program will enable you to:

  • Explore the significant legal issues affecting employment
  • Learn concrete steps to follow for specific HR scenarios
  • Protect your organization from potential legal liability
  • Prove your knowledge to colleagues, managers, and regulators
