This course is designed to examine the body of laws that address the legal rights of and restrictions on employees and employers in the workplace. This body of law includes federal discrimination statutes, civil rights, collective bargaining, and fair labor standards. In addition, we will examine corresponding Massachusetts Laws that grant employees rights in the workplace.
The laws will be examined, through case analysis and case studies, with specific focus on how those laws impact the biggest concerns facing Human Resource Managers in the workforce today. The course will balance analysis of traditional case law and statutes with professional training that relates to conduct in a business setting.
