Common HR Misconceptions

Webinar Details$219

Many employees and employers have misconceptions about human resources as a whole. Why?  Many believe what they learned at one company is the law or how all companies handle employee relations. Yet this is not often the case.  This session today will clarify the common misconceptions in hiring, managing and terminating employees. We will also focus on who is responsible for what – Supervisors, Managers/ Directors or the HR Department.

Areas Covered During Training:

Misconceptions and legalities in the hiring process:

  • Questions not to ask
  • Background checks & drug screenings/ policies
  • Independent contractor vs W2 employee
  • General best practices

Misconceptions and legalities during the termination process:

  • Reasons for termination
  • Vacation payout
  • Docking pay for missing tools or supplies
  • General best practices

Misconceptions and legalities in day-to-day management and employee relations:

  • Retaining awesome people
  • Staying out of legal trouble in regard to FLSA, FMLA and safety concerns
  • Workplace investigations
  • General best practices

Who is generally responsible for managing and communicating the above items:

  • Supervisor
  • Manager/ Director
  • HR representative 

Why Should You Attend:

As an employer representative (supervisors and up), your job is to be legally compliant while attracting and retaining the best employees and keeping the company out of court and/or the news. But do not worry, you do not need a law degree, you just need to know enough of the basics to then be able to pause and ask for help.
