Course "HUMAN RESOURCES BOOT CAMP: Focus on developments in employment law including sexual harassment" has been pre-approved by HRCI as eligible for 12 credits towards a participant's recertification upon full completion.

"The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program".

Please join The Wagner Law Group's David Gabor, and Amanda Scott, President of Solution Harbor, Inc., for a two-day Human Resources Boot Camp sponsored by Compliance Online.

In the past couple of months, we have been inundated with news of egregious cases of sexual harassment occurring in the workplace. To say the least, these stories are alarming. At the same time, many studies demonstrate that pay disparity remains a very real problem in this country. Not enough has been done to address this. As a result, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) proposed a new EEO-1 Report that demanded significantly more information from employers, including pay data and hours worked. While implementation of the new EEO-1 Report was placed on hold, it is clear that addressing disparities in employment, pay, and promotion are a focus at the EEOC. There have also been sweeping changes in laws governing employee recruitment and the interview process. These are some of the topics that will be thoroughly addressed during this boot camp.

Seminar Fee Includes:
AM-PM Tea/Coffee
Seminar Material
USB with seminar presentation
Hard copy of presentation
Attendance Certificate
$100 Gift Cert for next seminar

Amanda and David have designed a program specifically tailored to ensure that you gain a clear understanding of the necessary steps to be compliant and to build policies, practices, and training programs that are feasible. Development of these materials should coincide with reinforcing the culture, mission, and vision for the organization. Interactive discussions, breakout sessions, and role play will help lead to a strong understanding of strategies that will serve as a long-term benefit to any organization. You will not want to miss this opportunity to hear from the foremost experts in the field on these important topics!
