Impact on the Organization
Today, organizations are exposed to many legal risks associated with how they hire and manage their employees. From sexual harassment to discrimination and family leave, supervisors and managers must clearly understand how to protect the organization from lawsuits. When a problem arises, management must know how to respond appropriately without creating additional liability. Lawsuits aside, if you want to fully tap the skills of your entire workforce, your managers must set an example of fairness and equity – and understanding employment law can help them do so.
