Employee relations practices are rooted in the belief that fairly treated employees are more likely to help organizations realize their mission, vision, and goals. The course begins with an exploration of how employee relations practices impact the culture of an organization. Next, we cover employment practices that help employers comply with employment law. Finally, we examine the tools that the manager can use to improve employee relations. This is a senior level course. As such, you will be responsible for mastering much of the content on your own. I will also assume that you are familiar with principals of management from your other coursework. Our class time will be used to work through case studies, to debate issues, and to further explore questions that arise in this fascinating field. Learning Objectives Compare, contrast, and evaluate the differences between EEO law, diversity programs, and Affirmative Action policies. Articulate programs and policies that will help an organization prevent discrimination and address discrimination if it occurs. Understand and evaluate the impact of employee involvement programs: self-managed work teams, worker involvement in the design of EI programs, TQM, committees on productivity, worker involvement in work processes, suggestion or complaint systems, information-sharing with employees, and opinion surveys. Understand environmental safety and health regulations and their impact in the workplace.
