Leading and managing employees in an increasingly diverse workplace can be both rewarding and challenging. What are the expectations of employees? What legislation applies to managing people and their requests? What are the consequences of failing to comply? Local government supervisors must operate with sensitivity in handling accommodations for disabilities, religious practices, and medical leave.
Seeing a need for providing training and resources to local government supervisors, the MTAS training team recently launched a new online training course called, The Supervisor’s Toolbox. This course provides a quick overview, familiarizing supervisors and employees on the laws that affect day-to-day management of employees. The Supervisor’s Toolbox course serves as an introduction to the many general laws that apply to the workplace. Title VI and Title VII, harassment, FMLA, ADA, Military Leave Review, Immigration Reform and Control Act are just a few examples of the list. The course helps identify the purpose of these laws, and who and how they apply to employees in the workplace. It helps identify the situations where these laws come into play so that supervisors can respond appropriately to specific requests.
The course is worth one credit hour. To learn more about this online training course or others, simply visit MTAS Online Training at http://online.mtas.tennessee.edu.
The Supervisor’s Toolbox training is available online.
