Course Project Overview
Develop a training program to help new managers learn the fundamentals of employment law and their role in implementing the policies and practices that maintain legal
compliance in the workplace. Components of the project are assigned in each module, contributing to the comprehensive final product by the end of the course.
Develop 5-7 training objectives for the program. What should managers know and be able to do when they have completed the training program?
Develop a 1-page outline of the content you plan to include in the training program. What major topics and subtopics will be covered? What are the most important
things managers will need to know about their role in employment law compliance? Include ideas about the kinds of training methods best suited for delivering the
content and achieving the learning objectives.
• Informational methods: one-way communication to convey important factual information (i.e. lectures and audiovisual media).
• Experiential methods: interactive methods to give trainees opportunity to apply knowledge, practice skills, and demonstrate behaviors (i.e. e-learning,
simulations, case study analysis, and role play).
Write an annotated bibliography to gather descriptive information about the sources you will use to develop your training program; use at least five credible,
scholarly resources besides the text. Once complete, the annotated bibliography will also serve as a reference list for trainees, a takeaway new managers can use on
the job when confronted with employment law issues and the need to consult specific resources for further information.
In addition to the bibliographical information about the source that would typically appear in a works cited list, include a concise paragraph or two to briefly
summarize the content of the source and to describe how it is relevant to the training or how it will be useful to managers beyond the training.
Here is an example of an annotated bibliography entry for the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL):
Training Content, Part 1
Expanding on the outline created in Module 2, develop the content for the first half of the training program as it will be presented to trainees. In the outline, you
identified the most important things managers will need to know about employment law. In this part of the project, you will explain those things in greater detail so
that new managers can better understand their role in human resource practice and workplace compliance with employment laws.
This component of the project will likely take the form of a Power Point presentation, although other delivery methods may be considered. Whatever medium is used, it
should allow for a sufficient amount of detail about each subtopic and key point. For example, the slides in a Power Point presentation might contain concise bullet
points, while elaboration of those key points is provided in the “notes” section below each slide (in normal view, but not visible in slideshow mode). Alternatively,
audio recordings can be added to the presentation so that trainees may view it in slideshow mode and hear the trainer elaborate on the key points in each slide. Be
sure to cite sources and provide references for trainees to seek further information.
