Handle Or Hand Off? Helping Supervisors And HR Work Together To Avoid Legal Headaches
|Date / Time:
The supervisors on your staff should have a decent working knowledge of human resources best practices - what they can do, what they can't do, and what they should and shouldn't say. But there's a fine line between knowing enough and knowing just enough to be dangerous.
When supervisors "play HR," they can leave companies vulnerable to embarrassing and costly legal action. This is particularly true when garden-variety issues escalate into more complex territory, especially in California, where the rules are particularly complicated and employee-friendly.
No matter how knowledgeable your supervisors may be, there's always a time when HR should be brought in. The key is knowing when.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- An overview of how human resources and supervisors can best work together in a way that is collaborative and constructive
- Red flags that indicate HR backup is needed
- Techniques to help you better communicate with supervisors before everyone finds themselves in the middle of something complicated and legally risky
- Why ongoing conversations with supervisors are more effective than mandates
- How to get beyond easily buried "dos" and "don'ts" lists and work effectively with your supervisors on management, leaves, discipline, and other important matters
- How to ensure managers and HR alike know how to conduct effective, legally sound interviews
- What your supervisors can and can't restrict when it comes to their employees discussing pay
- Nonthreatening ways to teach your supervisors what they know and don't know so they can accurately assess when HR should be called in
- The hot-button situations in which HR should be called in immediately, no questions asked, before any action is taken
- And much more!

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
