Labor law is something that affects everyone who works. If you're in HR or management, there is a clear need to understand regulations pertaining to hiring and termination, overtime, contractor status and other issues. If you're an employee, it's equally important to be aware of your rights and responsibilities.
Lorman Education Services offers a variety of labor law training programs for legal and HR professionals, business owners and executives, and anyone who wants to understand this complex, multifaceted field better. Use the links on this page to browse our catalog of live and OnDemand programming.
Why Is Labor Law Training Important?
Training is an investment for both individuals and employers. As much as you know your business already, there are still many compelling reasons to consider taking labor and employment law courses at Lorman Education Services:
- Labor laws change routinely at both the state and federal levels. New technologies and trends, such as Uber and Airbnb, affect the way these laws are interpreted, with implications for contractors and hiring managers.
- Consequences of a labor law violation can be severe. From fines and liabilities to reputational damage, a high-profile noncompliance issue can cost you money and affect your continued viability as a business.
- Respecting the law earns you the respect of your employees. In-demand staff want to know they are working for an organization that values their rights as an employee. By prioritizing labor law training and developing policies accordingly, you demonstrate to your staff how much you value their skills and contributions.
- Staying on top of current labor laws saves you money. When you are aware of your responsibilities as an employer, you can run a leaner and more efficient operation overall.
Labor law training can also be a great investment for HR professionals looking to advance their careers, and lawyers looking to earn new corporate clients. Ultimately, our training helps you do your job better, which can open the doors to exciting and rewarding future opportunities.
