Why should you Attend
How many times have managers/supervisors made decisions you as a business owner or company leadership wished they didn't? The law is clear on what behaviours from managers are risks of 'Vicarious Liability'. This term has many implications for employers, employees and managers. In fact, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has included managers who employees allege harassed them on any of the EEOC discrimination under the Civil Rights Act. The EEOC established the relationship of an employee's supervisor as the identified person where Vicarious Liability claims would be an appropriate charge. Many employers are not aware of the impact of manager's actions on employment decisions. That is why one of the principles most HR professionals focus on is training of managers on several legal and compliance guidelines, including 'Vicarious Liability'. Managers must be accountable of the actions when it comes to employees. Managers are part of the company leadership and therefore they should be held to higher standards. As compliance, professional I am aware of the correlations between manager training and risk reduction and would like employers to take seriously the role managers play in 'Vicarious Liability.'
