Weekly Tip To Minimize Liability Exposure
Train Your Managers and Supervisors

Therefore, it is imperative for employers to know what their supervisors are doing. Supervisor training is an essential component of keeping an employer’s liability to a minimum. Not only do supervisors need to understand what is acceptable in terms of conduct regarding employees, but they need to understand the consequences of their own actions.
