A constantly evolving legal landscape contributes to increasingly complex HR challenges in the education sector. What do you do when your investigation reveals improper conduct? How do you balance competing human rights? What are your obligations for your employees’ mental health? These and other challenges make it imperative that you have a clear understanding of the law, its implications and your obligations.

Focusing on the most critical human resource issues facing school boards today, you will gain a practical, up-to-date understanding of these complex and often thorny legal issues and how best to manage them including:

  • The top HR issues facing educators today
  • Privacy rights: striking the right balance
  • The human rights of staff vs. students: how should you prioritize?
  • What are the implications when your board ignores inappropriate behavior?
  • Employer obligations to provide a safe workplace
