More about Employment Law Training and Course Options

Employment laws can range from fairly broad in scope to highly specific in terms of intention. Many course providers offer training on specific employment laws or employment laws for a given state or country. Common topics within employment law are health and safety, discrimination, employee contracts, minimum-wage and diversity programs. It is also common to find comparative employment law programs designed for companies working in several countries.

Discrimination and the law

Discrimination law within the US the private sector has expanded greatly in the past few decades, based primarily on statutes within the Constitution protecting the state and federal employees from discrimination. Federal law prohibits the discrimination against employees, both private and public, based on a number of factors. These include:

  • gender
  • religion
  • national origin or citizenship
  • age
  • financial situation
  • pregnancy
  • race
  • disability
  • military affiliation or service


Prominent among those initiatives designed to prohibit discrimination are title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the equal pay act, the age discrimination in employment act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. These and related employment nondiscrimination acts are designed to protect employees no matter their background or personal history. They are commonly amended, requiring a regular review of current impact. Many training providers with employment law offer up-to-date learning and detailed analysis of relevant cases describing their specific complexities. Find training on a specific employment law ,or look for training that provides an overview of relevant employment law within your state.There are many training companies that also offer courses on international employment law. Search the list above for employment law training for the country with which you are conducting business

Wage considerations and employment law

The minimum wage is regularly updated to reflect inflation, as well as the current local economic environment. Within the US the minimum wage is determined at both the national level and in many instances the state level. Many states have minimum-wage requirements that are higher than those of the federal level, many match the federal level, several do not set minimum wage requirements and a select few have a minimum wage lower than the federal level. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics identifies four employment sectors that are most commonly paid at a minimum wage. These are:

  • food-service
  • agriculture
  • service and hospitality
  • cleaning and maintenance


Ensure that your organization is compliant with employment wage loss and stay up-to-date on current federal and state regulations related to minimum wage.

Employment contracts

Employment contracts are an extremely important part of the employee-employer relationship. They denote an economic dependence on the part of the employee and often represent both a legally binding and sort of social contract that both parties agree to and sign.

Employee contracts carry significant weight in civil courts hearing cases between employees and organizations. There is a heavy responsibility on all parties involved in an employment contract that responsibilities and obligations are fully understood. Search for training programs on drafting and implementing employment contracts that cater to the specific needs of your business sector or organization.

Employment law for human resource management

Courses for HR management and employment law tends to outline the managers responsibility for regulatory compliance and provide an up-to-date understanding of how the role functions to implement relevant legal frameworks. These courses generally describe the legal aspects and responsibilities attached to dealing with common human resource issues.This often includes situations like dealing with discipline and problem employees within the context of the employee contract and the law.
