Avoid These Top HR Mistakes is brought to you by Lorman
Avoid common HR mistakes and develop effective policies and procedures that efficiently communicate expectations.
This course offers practical advice and tools for the tool kit on establishing best practices from day one of the employment lifecycle and throughout the subsequent employer/employee relationship. The employment lifecycle begins with hiring, onboarding, and classifying employees as exempt vs. nonexempt, and when some are required to execute noncompete agreements. It continues through all aspects of the employer/employee relationship up to voluntary or involuntary separation. Actions and events that could ultimately lead to expensive litigation may rear their ugly head throughout the employment relationship. The best way to mitigate the risk of costly employment-related lawsuits and other unwanted developments is to take a proactive, forward-thinking stance and develop effective policies, procedures, and practices that efficiently communicate expectations. The next step would be to document when performance and behavior fall short of those expectations. Ineffective employment standards could lead to unnecessary employee relations headaches, costly human resources turnover, and workplace violence.
