Product Description

Business lawyers and in-house counsel often find themselves providing advice on labor and employment matters, preparing employment-related documents, and managing employment-related litigation. While the best course might be to hire a labor and employment law specialist, your client might not always have that option. You must be prepared to spot issues and provide fast, practical advice. This program helps you gain the knowledge to assist your business clients in avoiding employment law liability, staying compliant, and effectively managing and defending employment claims in a rapidly-changing legal landscape.
