Course Description

Almost all businesses use some sort of employment law. Employment law is the area of law that governs the employer-employee relationship. Therefore, if the business has more than one employee, then the business likely uses employment law. This area is made up of both state and federal laws and includes many different subjects with the common goal to protect workers' rights. For employees, these laws work to:

  • Prevent discrimination
  • Promote health and safety
  • Establish a minimum required level for economic support
  • Prevent work disruption due to disputes between labor and management

Just one well-known example is Title VII. This is a federal statute included as a part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This famous law prohibits employment discrimination based on a person's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. This means that these aspects can't legally be considered when hiring, firing, promoting, compensating, or in any other aspect of employment.

Another well-known example is the Fair Labor Standards Act or FLSA. This crucial piece of federal legislation was enacted during the Great Depression when workers often suffered long hours, harsh conditions, and unjust pay. The FLSA established a federal minimum hourly wage and child labor laws for certain industries. When the FLSA was enacted in 1938, the minimum hourly wage was only $0.25. In 2020, the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Many states, however, have higher minimum wages than that set by the FLSA. Some state-mandated minimum wages are as high as $13.50 per hour (such as in Washington).

The speaker David Miklas will use recent, ripped-from-the-headlines examples of what employers are doing wrong. Learn from real-world examples of things that other businesses are screwing up in a COVID-19 world. This year includes the Biden presidency and changes with EEOC, DOL, NLRB, etc. In this online CPE course, topics will range from discrimination and harassment to retaliation and wage claims.
