HR Bootcamp: Basic training on HR to make you are effective and legal


We will cover the HR process for small and midsize companies, where the HR person is usually a multi-wearing hat employee. We will talk about :

  • Finding the right people
  • The laws involved with recruiting
  • How to use social media
  • How to effectively interview
  • How to conduct background checks that will keep the EEOC from your door
  • How to document interviews
  • How do you pay people fairly and legally
  • What does exempt and nonexempt really mean
  • The use of independent contractors

Why should you attend:

Anyone who is currently handling the human resources function without the benefit of professional training may be making mistakes that could be financially damaging and damaging to the company's reputation. The world of HR compliance is a complicated one with complicated laws dealing with how people are paid, how they are disciplined, how they are recruited and how they are treated. Additionally with a new generation of workers and constantly advancing technology the challenges of handling HR can be daunting. Policies, procedures, best practices can appear to overwhelm the untrained HR person or office manager.
