Personnel Law

Learn in the classroom, not in the courtroom! Mistakes in managing personnel can lead to costly litigation. During this course you will learn about the laws involved in the management of employees within any organization, the implications of the laws affecting personnel management, and specific operational approaches to assure compliance. A survey of the laws and regulations affecting personnel policy will help ensure compliance. You will learn:

  • critical federal and Maine employment law statutes
  • rules of hiring, termination, and discipline
  • federal and state employment discrimination laws
  • laws regarding sexual harassment, workplace violence, and family and medical leave
