Get the tools you need to tackle the unique HR challenges of the education sector.

A constantly-evolving legal landscape means increasingly-complex HR circumstances.

What do you do when an investigation reveals improper conduct? What are your obligations for your employees’ mental health? How do you balance competing human rights? Addressing these and other challenges requires a clear understanding of the law, its implications and your obligations.

In this one-day program, experts will guide you through the legal context of the unique Human Resources landscape of the education sector, including student and staff safety concerns, duties to accommodate, workplace disputes and investigations, and the risks of social media.
