    Employment Law Essentials for Managers Training

    In today’s increasingly complex workplace, managers must navigate a wide range of policies, procedures, laws and regulations that govern their everyday activities. From interviewing and hiring to complying with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), managers need to know how to respond appropriately and avoid actions that may lead to compliance violations and costly claims.

    Providing regular training on the basics of common workplace laws is an important step in ensuring managers understand their responsibility to comply with these laws and create and maintain a culture of ethics and compliance.

    What is Traliant’s Accelerated Learning?

    Accelerated learning provides an efficient and targeted eLearning experience by enabling managers to test out of topics they know, and focus on areas in which they need to refresh their knowledge and deepen their understanding.

    How does it work?

    At the beginning of each episode, learners can take a quiz to test their knowledge of the topics covered. By scoring 100%, they can choose to skip the episode and advance to the next one – or continue with the episode. In this way, organizations can provide an engaging and challenging learning experience, while reducing seat time and costs.

    Topics are presented in a modern, engaging format comprising 6 episodes: Interviewing and Hiring, Wage and Hour Laws, Preventing Retaliation, FMLA Basics, Handling Harassment Complaints and Reasonable Accommodations.

    The course features a host video, news stories and viewer email and Twitter Q&A segments. A variety of interactions, quizzes and assessments challenge managers to respond appropriately to different situations involving workplace laws, spot issues and know when to seek guidance.  A course-completion certificate is included.
