Compliance and triathlons have approximately 47 things in common. I won’t bother to list them here, as there’s only one relevant to this article – training.
Training for a triathlon is pretty straightforward. Employment law compliance training, however, is quite tricky. Most training sessions fly in one ear and out the other – or any number of ears, depending on the size of your conference room – because the process doesn’t engage its targets (your managers and supervisors).
One product that claims to alleviate this training woe is The Supervisor’s Employment Law IQ Challenge: 101 Real-World Cases to Increase Supervisor Awareness of Common Legal Pitfalls.
This book – full of two-page segments about specific and actual employment law cases – is meant to help get your employees to actively think and participate in the employment law training you conduct, so they don’t forget the information as soon as they leave the room.
Covering the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), terminations, compensation, and more, this resource can serve as:
- a great kickoff for interactive meetings
- a resource for practical and real-world examples of employer actions and consequences
- a tool to learn from others’ mistakes.
