In today's complex workplace, HR compliance isn't just a challenge – it's a moving target. As regulations evolve and employee expectations shift, even seasoned HR professionals struggle to keep pace. But what about the managers on your front lines?

Every interaction between managers and employees is a potential minefield:


  • A casual comment could be misconstrued as discrimination.
  • An honest mistake in overtime calculations might violate labor laws.
  • A well-intentioned accommodation could inadvertently breach ADA guidelines.
  • An improperly handled leave request may run afoul of FMLA regulations.


For new managers, these challenges are amplified. They're often thrust into roles where they must supervise former peers, inherit underperforming teams, or navigate delicate employee relations issues – all while trying to grasp the basics of HR compliance. Imagine a new manager faced with an allegation of harassment or a sudden request for extended medical leave—without proper training, their response could inadvertently escalate the situation, leading to significant legal and financial repercussions for the company.


And for those stepping into HR roles? The stakes are even higher. Suddenly, they're responsible for guiding all managers across the organization, often without a comprehensive understanding of the "Big Four" of employment compliance: Title VII, FLSA, FMLA, and ADA.


When employee issues are mishandled before reaching HR, they often create liability for the organization. The way employers address these problems can either mitigate or amplify this liability. This is further complicated when managers inherit dysfunctional teams or transition from peer to supervisor, bringing unique challenges.


This webinar cuts through the complexity, offering a pragmatic approach to HR compliance. We'll explore how seemingly minor managerial actions can create significant liability and, more importantly, how to prevent these issues before they escalate to HR.
