Why Should You Attend:

How many times have managers/supervisors made decisions you as a business owner or company leadership wished they didn't?

The law is clear on what behaviours from managers are risks of 'Vicarious Liability'. This term has many implications for employers, employees and managers. In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has included managers who employees allege harassed them on any of the EEOC discrimination under the Civil Rights Act. The EEOC established the relationship of an employee's supervisor as the identified person where Vicarious Liability claims would be an appropriate charge.

Many Managers do not know that they can be part of an employee lawsuit against wrongful termination or other forms of harassment. That is why one of the principles most HR professionals focus on is training of managers on several legal and compliance guidelines, including 'Vicarious Liability'. Managers are part of the company leadership and therefore they should be held to higher standards.

This webinar is beneficial for Employers, managers, supervisors and even HR professionals by becoming aware of how to minimize the risk of being accused of charges under 'Vicarious Liability'.
