This full-day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the various and important personnel laws that every public manager, leader, department head and staff member should be familiar with. Topics to include discipline and discharge, family medical leaves, disability, discrimination and handling difficult employee situations. There will be discussion on special rules that apply to public employers, and the presenters will answer questions and will discuss common personnel issues.

Whether it’s conduct, conflict resolution, ADA requirements, FMLA obligations or just dealing with staff performance expectations, managers and supervisors need to be aware of the requirements. If you supervise, manage or lead anyone, you shouldn’t miss this course.
