The HR-Related Law Series is a four-part series on the legal aspects of human resource management leading to a Certificate in HR Related Law. The series topics include Compensation and Benefits Law, Special Issues, Labor Relations and Discrimination. 

The Basics…...

Everyday legislative bodies, courts, and executive agencies issue new opinions that can have significant impact on your organization. The escalating risks of liability for failure to understand and adhere to these laws and regulations including criminal sanctions, make it mandatory to know the full requirements of these laws and what to do about them in your own organization.

·         How can you keep up with new HR laws? 

·         How can you limit your organization’s exposure to employee litigation?

·         How can you learn what practical actions you should take in the workplace?

·         How can you gain the confidence to make important decisions in this complex field?

Teams of attorneys will present a series of evenings on "need to know" employment topics. You will be brought up-to-date, share ideas and current issues with your peers as well as interact with attorneys focusing on the laws and regulations affecting employee-related law. Developed and taught by central Iowa attorneys, you will build a foundation in both federal and State of Iowa legal regulations as well as become better prepared to comply with the particular laws that affect your organization.
