New Supervisor: Labor and Employment Law - Supervisor Briefing

Author: Marta Moakley, XpertHR Legal Editor

This Supervisor Briefing examines the best practices regarding new supervisor training with respect to labor and employment law compliance. This summary aims to acquaint the user with major labor laws, and does not represent an in-depth review of the material. The topics covered include:

  1. Nature of the Employment Relationship
  2. Wage and Hour Concerns
  3. Discrimination Protections
  4. Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
  5. Retaliation Protections and Whistleblowing
  6. Privacy
  7. Safety and Security
  8. Communications and Reference Checks
  9. Unions
  10. Test Yourself

Because compliance concerns vary by organization, an employer may add to this list of topics based on a training needs assessment. In addition, if an employer does not meet the coverage requirements of the law (e.g., some laws apply to employers with one or more employees, some to employers with 50 or more employees), then the employer may wish to omit that portion of the Supervisor Briefing.
