Legal Aspects of Management

The government’s dedication to assuring a fair workplace has meant greater legal complexity in all aspects of supervision. This workshop will help supervisors navigate the most current legal provisions associated with the public-sector workplace and translate them into plain-English guidelines. This class will:

  • Review the concept of equal employment opportunity and its application in interviewing, supervision, promotion and termination;
  • Understand the most current definitions of sexual harassment, and what to do if it is reported or suspected;
  • Learn how to conduct a legally-compliant performance appraisal; 
  • Expand knowledge of how to prevent legal problems when responding to poor performers;
  • Increase awareness of legal issues associated with electronic communication; and
  • Learn when to seek assistance from legal or human resource management specialists.
