Employment Compliance Basics
You must adhere to employment laws to mitigate potential liabilities and losses.

This webinar focuses on areas of high risk for new HR officers or anyone seeking knowledge of HR compliance
and best practices.

Employers are required to adhere to employment laws, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act and Fair Labor Standards Act. It’s important that employers are compliant
with employment laws as it mitigates the risk of liability for unfair employment practices and potential losses that might have a greater impact on the bank.
