Course Description
Managing within the Law

Effective management is vital to a successful company. Too often, individuals who have excelled in a company due to a specific skills set are promoted to managerial positions before having adequate management training or any at all.

As a consequence, many managers lack the interpersonal skills, sensitivity, legal awareness and professionalism necessary for effective management. The result can be disastrous: endless conflicts; low morale and productivity; wasted talent; high and costly turnover; and lawsuits based on privacy violations, discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, among other things.

As the workforce and legal mandates have grown more complex, the need for both managerial skills and awareness of the legal ramifications of management decisions has increased dramatically. Employers cannot afford to allow managers to learn through trial and error; comprehensive management training is necessary to prepare managers for today’s workforce.
