It's not easy to be a supervisor these days. You've got to get the job done--often with fewer employees and a tighter budget. Plus, you're expected to know exactly what to do or say every time a "people problem" comes up. This video was created to help you find your way through the maze of employment laws and regulations, while at the same time maximizing the performance of your workers.
This video goes behind the scenes during the first eventful weeks when a new manager takes over a team in the middle of an important project. The narrator, Alan Levins, an Employment Law Attorney with Littler Mendelson PC, explains critical legal issues as you witness this manager's struggle to win the respect and cooperation of her sometimes unruly crew.
Key learning points include:
An overview of the major employment and anti-discrimination laws.
Legal and effective performance reviews, discipline and termination.
How to stay in compliance while treating employees with fairness and dignity.
Knowledge of employment law as well as solid principles of people management is basic survival training for every supervisor. While each day brings new challenges, fortunately there are actions you can take not only to survive, but to thrive, in the modern workplace.
