Just the Facts: Key Court Decisions of 2014 (Group)

Now in individual and group-learning formats, review the facts of recent labor and employment law cases and learn how to translate the outcomes into practical action that can help your institution avoid similar situations.

This course is ideal for HR professionals and others on campus who manage labor and employment issues. It will help you think through, talk about and respond to existing or potential legal issues on campus.

You’ll get the facts of the case from CUPA-HR General Counsel Ira Shepard, who is an employment and labor law expert as well as a highly-rated CUPA-HR conference speaker. You’ll then work through guided questions to consider how a similar situation might impact your own institution before judging the outcome for yourself. Shepard will then provide the outcome of the case before you consider how your institution can avoid a similar situation.

This course was developed in conjunction with the association’s learning framework, which guides all CUPA-HR education and programming.
