Did you know that employee lawsuits against an employer have risen 400% over the last 20 years? And of the lawsuits brought against an employer, four out of five involve businesses with less than 100 employees? It’s an unfortunate reality of the business world, and as a business owner, you need to understand the laws and how they apply to you as an employer.
That’s why the Ohio Chamber of Commerce created the HR Academy – a resource offered to all Ohio businesses and law firms to help maintain a comprehensive understanding of employment law and issues. The Ohio Chamber has partnered with top employment lawyers across Ohio to deliver productive information to those within your organization responsible for overseeing human resource-related matters.
The Ohio Chamber, the Ohio Chamber’s HR Academy and its participating presenters and contributors make no representations or warranties, express or implied, that the information presented in the HR Manual, employment law posters, webinars (live webcast or recorded) and webinar associated materials (hereinafter collectively, “HR Materials”) will prevent you or your company from being named as a party in an administrative proceeding before any local, state or federal agency or an action filed in any court.
The use of Ohio Chamber of Commerce’s HR Academy HR Materials does not establish an attorney-client relationship between yourself, your organization and the HR Academy attorney presenters and contributors. The Ohio Chamber of Commerce’s HR Academy HR Materials are meant to be used for informative purposes only and are not a substitute for consulting your own legal counsel regarding any issues you or your organization may face. You and or your organization should always contact your own legal counsel should the need arise.
