This training is a part of our popular Supervisory Certificate Series and is open for individual registrations.
Many supervisors do not understand how their decisions about employee issues can create liability, not only for the agency but also for themselves personally. This program will give supervisors basic information about employment law; plus skills and strategies for managing agency staff that can help to avoid employment litigation.
This is a great program for new supervisors learning the material, and seasoned supervisors needing a refresher!
