Private Sector Focused - AALRR WEBTrain | Management Performance Series - September 2021

Wednesday, September 08, 15, 22 & 29, & October 6, 2021
Program: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: Virtual - Multiple Dates

People are often promoted into management positions because they are good at their job, but a new manager may not be well-versed in the challenges of staff supervision or the utilization of a human resources department as a valuable tool.

The majority of company liability for any organization comes from the interaction between management and employees. When a new manager is not equipped to make employment decisions regarding appropriate discipline, when to allow an employee to take leave, or when to terminate another employee, their actions can negatively impact your organization.

Management challenges are made even harder if you have to guess what you can legally say or do, add in new employee protections due to the current pandemic and those challenges escalate. 

AALRR developed our Human Resources WEBTrain Management Performance Training Series to help address these issues. This dynamic, interactive five-part webinar enables managers and supervisors to build and refine the skills needed to manage people more effectively and understand the legal consequences of their actions. Special focus has been incorporated to address the challenges presented with working during a pandemic.

Join AALRR employment attorneys as they provide practical information and insights with a common-sense approach to comply with basic human resources practices and employment laws, and help your company avoid situations that may lead to expensive employee issues or even lawsuits. The information shared in this course will outline the basic rules and regulations for effective staff management and highlight the importance of following employment and labor laws, when to involve Human Resources and proper techniques for compliance.

Join us this September for this five-part live virtual series intended especially for California employers.
