Are you more worried about potential employee lawsuits in 2010? You should be. The current administration and Congress are working hard to expand employees’ rights—which means a lot of new legislation you have to be aware of, or else you could be opening yourself up to risk. The declining economy doesn’t help either, as desperate people seek litigation as a way to get extra cash, try to salvage their jobs, or just get even.

You need to sign up for this accredited HR and employment law training, so that you can prepare yourself and your company and avoid as much of this risk as possible. Marvin Weinberg goes over his “Top 10 List” of potential landmines that employers should focus on.

In this essential risk-reducing training, find out how key issues affect you, such as the effect of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) on union activity, recent changes to federal discrimination regulations, overtime issues when remote technology lets employees work away from the office, potential audits by the Department of Labor for misclassifying employees, privacy rights, and much more.

Be prepared. Be informed before litigation happens, because whether you win or not, it could cost you thousands. Sign up today for this accredited HR training, and prevent landmines from blowing up in your office.
