Introducing the Gibbons Employment Academy Webinar Series
As highlighted in our January “Focus on Training in 2011” post, training programs directed to human resources and supervisory employees are a win-win for employers. Whether as a primer or refresher, a legal overview and update on current developments will enable decision-makers to work within the boundaries of the law and reduce costs associated with employee complaints and litigation. Although employees are entitled to various protections under the law, employers must feel that they are empowered to make decisions and manage their employees, from the hiring process through separation.
Gibbons is pleased to announce the Gibbons Employment Academy webinar series, a series of training programs to assist your decision-makers. Our first webinar in the series, focusing on Hiring Practices, is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. During this program, we will provide an overview of sound hiring practices, including permissible interview questions, avoiding the creation of oral and written employment contracts, and acceptable pre-employment processes, such as medical and drug testing and credit checks. The webinar series is appropriate for in-house attorneys, human resources professionals and supervisory employees, and CLE credit is available. The webinars can be purchased individually or as a series and are a cost-effective way to train decisionmakers on critical management and employment law issues.
