This HR training session teaches attendees how to manage employees demonstrating performance problems. Critical to the success of any business is the early identification and swift management of such issues. We will work through typical employee relation problems in small groups, and discuss some of the dangers that each scenario may present. Performance management class also reviews federal laws covering the topics of Age, Race, National Origin, Color, Gender and Religion Discrimination Prevention. Additionally, we will cover ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act, and FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) position classification and its implications. Finally, in the performance management class will review local and state laws that may provide protection beyond that which the federal government mandates. The performance management class is designed for managers at all levels of the organization, and can be particularly effective if both line managers and more senior-level managers attend.
