Basic Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Compliance

New to HR?  Need a refresher on workplace equal employment opportunity compliance?

Whether you’re a people manager, work in HR, or are involved in recruiting, hiring, or compensating employees, chances are that someone at one point or another will question a decision you or someone else has made. When those questions implicate workplace fairness and equal treatment, it’s essential you understand the rules that apply.

Taught by nationally recognized experts, CWC’s Basic EEO and Affirmative Action Compliance course provides the tools and strategies you need to ensure compliance with federal, state, and local nondiscrimination requirements. It also covers the essentials of federal contractor affirmative action requirements for women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
