BLR to Offer Compliance Boot Camp for Supervisors

Extended Webinar Educates Employers' First Line of Defense Against Employment Lawsuits -- From Hiring to Problem Employees, Harassment to Termination, and More

OLD SAYBROOK, CT--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR®) is presenting an exclusive day-long webinar event led by HR and employment law experts on March 18, 2009: "Compliance Boot Camp for Supervisors: From hiring to problem employees, harassment to termination, and more ..."

For many employers, frontline supervisors are their first line and sometimes only line of defense between their company and a nasty lawsuit. While HR professionals know and understand the employment laws that apply to the workplace, no matter how well-informed they are, that knowledge is wasted if supervisors aren't "walking the legal walk" with employees.

Compliance Boot Camp for Supervisors is designed in an easy-to-use webinar format that allows companies to train groups of supervisors in the basics of employment compliance. In less than 6 hours, this webinar gives managers the basics they need for staying in compliance -- and keeping their employers out of court. Covered topics include:

--  Hiring: How to Attract and Select Top Candidates -- Legally
--  Problem Employees: Dealing with the Difficult, the Deceitful, and the
--  Harassment: What to Do When an Employee Brings a Complaint
--  Terminations: How to Minimize the Legal Risks
--  Hot Topics: What Supervisors Need to Know Now

Supervisors can stay for all five sessions, or pick and choose which they'd like to attend. The webinar additionally offers up to 5 hours of HRCI credit for HR professionals.
