Overview: Otherwise known as Today’s Legal Environment, Part II. Our continually evolving culture, pressures in the workplace for immediate results, evolving legal standards and changes in employee expectations continue to pressure a manager’s sense of fairness. This program goes beyond simple legal compliance to developing a workplace environment that builds both the business and the relationships within it.

Course Description
The program will review the historical changes in the workplace from the perspectives of legal evolution, employee expectations, multi-generational participation and management practices to establish the uniqueness of today’s workplace and employee expectations. Participants will understand the relationship between their organization’s culture and their individual role in promoting and living those cultural expectations.  We’ll review today’s changing legal requirement with a particular focus on managerial accountability for maintaining a fair and equitable workplace, including discussion of bullying, sexual preference and gender identification. The program will also review recent changes within the Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board and how current rulemaking impacts the leader’s role in dealing with their subordinates.

  • Learn the impact of today’s legal environment, and recent changes in society and law influence their role
