This 3-hr virtual seminar will focus on the basic tenants of the laws surrounding EEO and what that means for your management practices. It will provide a comprehensive overview of employment law, key legislation affecting your management decisions and your responsibility to understand and comply with it.
Why Should You Attend:
For many, EEO is regarded as management’s worst nightmare and Federal, state, and local legislation is often cited by many emerging firms as one of the major barriers to growth. This may be because of the known consequences for not complying. Unfortunately though, actually managing the human resource of the organization is a discriminatory activity. Decisions have to be made on whom to hire, fire, promote, give pay raises, etc. It is when these decisions are not made according to Equal Employment Opportunity requirements that a company may find it has problems with illegal discrimination.
In this three hour virtual seminar, we will overview employment law and the principles on which it is based so that leadership can be provided with the necessary tools to develop sound policy and provide interpretation and recommendations on a wide range of EEO and civil rights issues to individuals within the organization. In this first of four segments on the subject, the attendee is provided with essential information on the tenants of EEO and common misconceptions about compliance.
Upon completion of this summit, the participant will be able to:
- Define basic EEO concepts and discuss the key provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
- Give examples of three sex-based discrimination issues.
- Indicate the major requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
- Discuss the two general approaches for complying with the 1978 Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures.
