Webinar: Supervisor Training: HR's "Front Line" of Defense

Robin E. Shea

If your HR department is stellar (and it is!), then you don't have to worry about supervisor training, right? Wrong.

Your front-line supervisors will know about potential Human Resources and labor relations issues like favoritism, workplace safety, communication and union organizing - not to mention legal "red alerts" like workplace harassment, discrimination, or bullying - long before you or the company's lawyers ever hear about them. By the time you and your attorneys become aware of a workplace issue, your front-line supervisor has probably either nailed it, left it to languish and fester, or botched it beyond repair.

In this webinar, Robin Shea, a partner with the labor and employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP, discusses the importance of training front-line supervisors and why it is one of the best proactive and preventive steps an employer can take.

Robin talks about what effective supervisor training should include and which topics should be covered with supervisors on a regular basis, as well as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's recent report on sexual harassment, and the Commission's position on the importance of supervisor training as an integral part of an employer's response and defense.
