Employer Liability for Hiring and Firing

FMLA,ADA, ADEA, GINA and USERRA. Learn how to avoid employer liability for hiring and firing under each of these statutes. Find out how each of these laws interacts with the others to ensure that your company is in full compliance and adequately protected from employer liability for hiring and firing. Most employers do not know that in many states the state employment discrimination laws apply to employers with small numbers of employees such as 4 or more employees. In addition, USERRA applies to employers with one or more employees and theADA applies to employers with 15 or more employees. Yet small employers do not understand their legal obligations with regard to these laws and are not prepared for the financial burdens of employment discrimination litigation. Learn how to protect your company and yourself (managers can be held personally liable under most state fair employment laws, for example underNew YorkStates Human Rights Law). This employment law seminar will review the life cycle of employment from hiring to firing and review the impact that each of the employment discrimination laws has on each phase of employment.
