This certificate program is designed to help current and aspiring human resource managers and staff understand employment laws and regulations in order to deal effectively with labor-related legal issues in the workplace. The courses address key employment law requirements in the United States and also provide guidance on the implementation of employment policies and practices in countries with different legal systems.
The program begins with a focus on establishing a structured framework for analysis of workplace legal issues. It then moves into a close look at US laws relating to equal employment opportunity, leave, compensation, safety, employee relations, and other employment issues. The last two courses address a global context with a comparison of employment laws in different parts of the world, followed by a study of best practices in developing HR policies and practices in multinational settings.
The courses feature downloadable, interactive tools designed to help HR professionals assess and deal with a variety of legal issues in the workplace.
