It's the Law: The Legal Side of Management identifies and explains key legal issues that a manager may have to address in the workplace today.
Managers in today's litigious society have a greater responsibility to their organizations than just supervising the everyday responsibilities of his or her department. Managers are also obligated to make sure that any employment decision they make doesn't result in a lawsuit. It's the Law: The Legal Side of Management identifies and explains key legal issues that a manager may have to address in the workplace today. It helps managers realize their responsibility to understand and enforce the employment laws that speak to these issues which can minimize their chances of ending up in court.
This video uses vignette-style examples of managers involved in various potentially litigious employment situations, including: a manager putting a less qualified employee in charge because they're friends; a manager who chooses to not deal with an employee's harassment charge against another employee; a manager who hires a new employee based on their personal life rather than their ability to do the job; and a company who doesn't reasonably accommodate a disabled job-interviewee. Each vignette is discussed to show why the situation could result in a lawsuit and what every manager needs to know to stay out of the courtroom.
