Review of Key Legislation
Employee and Labor Relations is one of the most comprehensive areas of study in the Human Resources field.
This introductory course will include a review of key legislation that impacts the employee in the workplace, the history of employee rights, and the development of legislation affecting collective bargaining in the United States.
We will study communication in the workplace on an individual level and in a team environment and discover what makes a great workplace. From the culture of the work environment to the methods of performance management, this course introduces students to the psychological and environmental factors that impact workplace relationships. From the selection of potential employees to sitting at the bargaining table with a collective bargaining unit, we will look at best practices for positive workplace relationships.
What makes a great leader? What are successful negotiating skills and ways to maintain great union/management relations? How can we become an employer of choice? Students will be exposed to a variety of solutions along with resources to use throughout their career, whether it be in the HR field or in any other workplace role.
Upon completion, you will understand the similarities and differences in the union and non-union environment, as well as the appropriate solutions based on best-practices models.
