Ever feel like you are stuck in a maze of employment law and have no idea if the way you are handling the latest issue is the best or most compliant? Can’t seem to keep up with rapidly changing laws? If so, this seminar is for you! You will learn about the latest developments in the ever-changing world of employment law, and have the opportunity to practice what you learn via realistic scenarios that you face every day as an HR professional.

** This activity is pending approval for 6.0 Professional Development Credits from SHRM. **


My employee claims he’s being bullied – what do I do now?”

“Do I have to give an employee every Friday off for migraines?”

“Are all of my salaried employees exempt from overtime?”

Are you prepared to address claims of bullying, discrimination or other policy violations in your workplace? Are you concerned about compliance with the myriad of leave laws? Are you up to speed on the wage and hour overtime exemptions?

In this 6-hour seminar, Foundations Human Resources Consulting will cover the basics of employment law in a practical way that will provide a whole new level of understanding for any HR professional who has to navigate the complex world of employment law.

Participants will review the basics – what the laws mean, to whom the laws apply, and how the laws are enforced. Plus, they’ll apply what they have learned by being the key decision-maker in real-life, delicate, employee scenarios. After all, it’s important for HR professionals to know not just the laws, but also the many ways the laws can be applied to avoid practices that expose an organization to unnecessary liability.

We will focus on:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act
  • Pregnancy Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Sexual and Other Prohibited Harassment
  • Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Fair Labor Standards Act



In this hands-on training, Stephanie Prewitt – former Toyota Assistant General Counsel with decades of experience in handling employment matters – will give you the knowledge and practical skills needed to handle tricky employment issues at your workplace in a way that is respectful to your employees and also reduces risk to your organization.

The interactive nature of this seminar and the vast experience and background of our seminar expert truly make this session one that you won’t forget.

 For each substantive area of law, we will delve into:

  • The Foundation: Coverage, Enforcement, Recent Developments
  • The “Real World” (practical applications and scenarios)
  • Tricky Situations and Tips to Manage



  • HR professionals who are new to their roles
  • Seasoned HR experts who want to ensure they are staying abreast of current developments in the law
  • Compliance personnel who handle employment issues
  • Professionals with a limited training budget looking for an outstanding training experience


** Lunch will be provided.
