The reality is that a California employer is 12 times more likely to be sued by an employee than an employer in the next highest state.  The smaller or newer the entity, the more likely it is that the entity does not have a human resources professional on staff – and the more likely it is that the cost of a single piece of litigation can cause anxiety and distraction or worse – shut its doors for good.

Wright and Supple Attorneys training

The Number 1 request from start-ups and small business is for HR training for their office administrators.  Employers are concerned, and rightly so, that untrained administrators will innocently violate the law because they simply do not have the education and materials necessary to perform the HR job function.

Wright & Supple offers a 7-part bespoke training program entitled Human Resources Management for Office Managers and Administrators.  The Training Program is administered at the rate of one 4-hour session per month at time scheduled in advance with the company.  Upon completion of the full program, the firm will issue a certificate of completion to the attendee.  

The Training Program will educate administrators and provide them with HR forms, checklists, and agreements relating to the seven (7) areas in which we believe employers are most likely to get into trouble and employees are most likely to sue:  

  • Hiring
  • Compensation
  • Performance Management
  • Leave Administration
  • Disability Accommodation
  • EEO investigations and Remediation
