This course gives a generic overview of compliance obligations. The information and tips you learn in this training are targeted to a US audience, and even then, many states have their own employment laws. Be sure to know your local and state laws.
- Management works in and environment governed by hundreds of laws and regulations. Remember the axiom. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Knowing the basic employment laws will help prevent you from generating legal exposures simply because you didn't know the law. Just as importantly, it will help you to understand when you must contact human resources, a hotline, or an attorney for additional help.
How you manage compliance concerns has much to do with your company culture and your personal integrity. Given today's online transparency, any slipup on your part is sure to be played out on social media, if not in a courtroom as well. My encouragement to you is that you view compliance as the ground floor of a healthy company culture and a longtime management career.

Remember, the best time to use an attorney is on the front end of a problem.
