“Managing Within the Law Training is still making its impact on management 18 months later.
I was stopped by a manager a few days ago, who wanted to let me know that he had been dealing with a situation and was able to correct the behavior and performance issue successfully due to specific skills and examples he acquired in your program.”
H.R. Manager | Hitachi Data Systems
Keep your company out of court and your managers out of jail with this proven managing within the law legal training program. Included are the laws relating to wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, defamation, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which provides for up to 20 years in prison for falsification of documentation, and for up to 10 years in prison for firing whistle-blowers.
Although the program starts with these laws to set the context, the emphasis throughout the day is on the spirit of the law, providing your people with an ethical compass, and critical legal do’s and don’ts. The content is updated annually, compliant with all state harassment laws, and includes your organization’s key policies and procedures.
All facilitators are seasoned attorneys and highly engaging facilitators who use personal stories and appropriate humor to make topics relevant and engaging based upon years of experience in the courtroom and the classroom.
The program is highly experiential with small group discussions, video vignettes, skill building exercises, practice, feedback, extensive Q &A, and case studies based on actual legal cases.
Participants receive a comprehensive workbook and reference guide they can use again and again.
