Human resource professionals may need to go beyond simply gaining a knowledge of how employment laws vary in different parts of the world and in specific countries. When a company begins operations in a new country, HR staff must make changes to their current policies or establish new ones that meet local requirements.
This course examines key practices and issues relating to employment and is designed to help your organization adapt its current policies and practices to a new legal environment. Through a multi-part course project, you will have an opportunity to apply what you learn to your own personal or organizational situation.
