Employment Law Basics for Managers

Managers and supervisors are directly responsible for the communications of many employee policies, but are rarely given any background information on the laws governing the workplace. This module provides insight on the various federal laws that impact management, including:
  • Discrimination Laws
  • Wage and Hour Regulations
  • Family Leave
  • Workers' Compensation
  • Workplace Safety Regulations
  • Hiring, Performance Management and Firing Restrictions

This module is designed for managers and supervisors who need to understand the legal implications of managing employees and the organization's policies to uphold those laws.

This module can be presented in two to four hours, depending on participants' skill level and teaching objectives. The module includes:

  • Break out groups to solve team problems
  • Discussion on techniques for team development
  • Exercises and presentations
  • Practice sessions and role plays
The participant's workbooks contain reference text and exercises, are bound and three hole punched. The module is divided into three sections, one for each phase of training: the Pre-Workshop Assignment, the Workshop Material, and the Post-Workshop Action Items. Participant's workbooks can be used for classroom instruction or on a self-paced basis.

The leader's guide contains the same material as the participant's workbook, with the addition of a section of introductory notes, answers to exercises and explanatory margin notes. The leader's notes contain tips and techniques on setting up and administering the session, checklists, and other teaching aids. Other beneficial components include:
  • A listing of suggested videos which complement the material.
  • Notes which highlight key points, provide tips for training, and detail competencies to be gained.
  • Margin Notes on the workshop materials which guide the leader through the material and indicate when to ask questions, encourage discussion, use flip charts, break into groups, and refer to specific material.


By the end of this module, the participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the federal and state prohibitions against discrimination.
  2. Understand the requirements of wage and hour laws.
  3. Recognize the legal implications of hiring, promotion and disciplinary procedures.
