Why You Should Attend This Workshop
If you are new to the Human Resources field, if you are changing careers and entering into the exciting world of HR or if you are currently in an HR role, your answer to the following questions should be ‘Yes’.
Do you know what you are expected to do to maintain compliance with all the employment laws such as FMLA, ADA, PDA, USERRA, ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, FLSA,  EPA, ADEA, IRCA, NLRA, DFWA, GINA  how to deal with cases of sexual harassment, discrimination, FMLA requests, ADA and Religious accommodation requests? Are you familiar with the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, with the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, do you know who Peggy Young is? Do you know how long you retain I-9 forms for inactive employees, how long you retain personnel records after employees leave the company, what steps to take during an employee’s termination process to avoid a wrongful discharge lawsuit, how to properly handle suicidal comments in the workplace, how to address hygiene issues with employees or how to manage an inclusive workplace with employees with physical and cognitive disabilities? What about how to maintain an engaged team, how to reduce turnover to retain talent, how to conduct thorough investigations? I think I am not even half way with the list that HR Professionals are expected to do. But if you answer “no” to any of these questions, don’t you worry. You have found the right Certificate Program that will provide with all the tools necessary to be the best HR Professional one can be!  After completing this certificate program you will gain the knowledge and skills and activities that are necessary to help your organization reduce costs, increase profitability, avoid potential lawsuits, increase employee engagement, maintain compliance with all employment laws and improve your ability to handle employee relations issues.
