*Employment Law for Supervisors and Managers Seminar is a double webinar with a curriculum developed by the law firm of Fisher and Phillips and offered by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce as a service to Illinois employers. This program was designed to help managers and supervisors gain the awareness and knowledge needed to minimize their organization’s risk of litigation from discrimination, misclassification, and wrongful termination claims.
This program is not meant to be an intensive study of the changes in the law, but a summary to generate an understanding of those changes in federal and state labor law for further examination.
