The impact of law on the management of human resources will be the focus of this class. I. Introduction This is a survey course of Employment law that is specially designed for business students. This course will focus on the following: ●An overview of our legal system, including how administrative agencies and the court systems work together ●The historical development of employment laws ●How to conduct workplace investigations ●Legal issues that can arise over the “life cycle” of employment from recruiting to termination ●How to address employee performance issues ●How to manage employment leaves of absence ●Federal and State anti-discrimination laws, including all “protected classes:” race, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, religion, veteran status, disability, medical condition, marital status, family care leave status, age, pregnancy, and sexual orientation. The goal of this class is to make you aware of the many employment issues that you may face as a business professional. As a manager, supervisor, or human resources professional, it will be your job to ensure that you, as well as the employees that you manage, act in legally permissible ways. If you can accomplish this goal, you will ensure that your employees benefit from the many laws intended to protect them. In addition, you will ensure that your employer stays profitable and as far away as possible from expensive litigation. II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
