Code of Conduct Awareness
Description: A code of conduct is a key part of the ethical framework in any organization.  It
should outline an organization's key ethical principles and provide detailed guidelines on the
expected standards of behavior for employees.  The code must be effectively distributed to all
employees in order to be useful, and should include a clear statement of penalties for
breaching it.  The existence of a well-written code of conduct is beneficial to all employees as
well as the organization.  This one-hour course teaches participants the concepts and benefits
of a corporate code of conduct, and offers practical advice on how to apply the code to ethical
dilemmas in a business environment.  SkillSoft's Legal Compliance courses are developed and
maintained with subject matter support provided by the Labor, Employment, and Employee
Benefits Law Group of the law firm of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green PA.
Target Audience=All employees.
Duration=1.0 hours

Conflicts of Interest in the Workplace
Description: This course is designed to raise employee awareness about conflicts of interest in
the workplace - what constitutes a conflict of interest, how a conflict of interest can be
avoided, and the appropriate action to take to ensure that a conflict of interest does not
negatively impact the employer or the employee.  An employee has a conflict of interest with
his or her employer if the employee has any type of personal interest - financial or otherwise -
that may impair the employee's judgment, causing the employee to consider his or her own
self-interests over those of the employer, when performing job-related duties.  A conflict of
interest may also exist if the employee has any potential personal interest that may impair the
employee's judgment, whether the employee realizes it or not, and even if the employee does
not intend to have a conflict of interest.  Conflicts of interest do not have to be acted upon to
exist - they can be inherent in the relationships and interests an employee has.  An employee
may have a conflict of interest if the employee's personal interests create the appearance of
an impropriety, regardless of whether the employee's judgment is actually impaired.  For
example, an employee with a conflict of interest may make an impartial decision that benefits
the employer, rather than his own self-interest.  However, because of the employee's conflict
of interest, the decision might create the appearance of impropriety and the employee's intent
or the decision might be called into question.  Accordingly, it is best to proactively avoid,
disclose and resolve conflicts of interest that may exist, rather than wait for them to be
exposed.  It is critical for employees, and managers, and executives in particular, in an
organization to understand and be able to identify the activities or actions that may create
conflicts of interest for their organization, so they can ensure that effective, fair, and legal
practices are followed when making or reviewing business decisions.  In addition to enabling
employees to recognize conflicts of interest they may have with their employer, this course will
enable decision-makers in organizations to identify potential conflicts of interest and develop
policies to help employees understand how to avoid, manage, and resolve conflicts of interest.

employer.

Employee Sexual Harassment Awareness
Description: Sexual harassment can have a disastrous impact on victims, offenders, and the
company in which the offense occurs.  Training employees in the essentials of prohibited
conduct is an important part of reducing liability and maintaining a professional work
environment.  This course helps participants identify two types of sexual harassment, and
recognize behaviors that may be considered sexually harassing in the workplace.  Participants
will also learn about courses of action available to victims, as well as the rights of employees,
and the responsibilities of employers relative to sexual harassment in the workplace.  This
one-hour course can help your company demonstrate its commitment to a fair, responsible,
and healthy organizational environment free from harassment and intimidation.  SkillSoft's
Legal Compliance courses are developed and maintained with subject matter support
provided by the Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Law Group of the law firm of
Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green PA.
Target Audience=Managers, supervisors, and employees.
Duration=1.0 hours

Ethical Decision Making
Description: What is an ethical decision?  Many studies show that business people have an
intuitive understanding of right and wrong, but that they find difficulty in explaining their
judgments.  This course provides the conceptual framework for discussing business ethics and
the tool kit for making ethical decisions.
Duration=3.5

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
Description: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes specific minimum requirements in
relation to employees' wages, hours of work, overtime entitlements, and payroll records.  The
act was passed to set and enforce federal requirements on minimum wages and overtime.  
The FLSA became federal law in 1938 as part of President Roosevelt's New Deal--its primary
aim was to respond to growing concerns about poor working conditions in many industries.  
The FLSA regulates wages, maximum hours of work and overtime, as well as child labor.  This
one-hour course enables participants to understand the main provisions of the act, helping
both employees and employers understand their rights and responsibilities in relation to those
provisions.  SkillSoft's Legal Compliance courses are developed and maintained with subject
matter support provided by the Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Law Group of the
law firm of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green PA.
Duration=1.5

Harassment in the Workplace
Description: Harassment in the workplace is not confined to sexual harassment.  Harassment
can be based on all protected characteristics, including race, color, national origin, religion,
age, and disability.  Depending on state law and other circumstances, additional
characteristics such as sexual orientation and marital status may also be protected.  An
effective harassment prevention training program must touch upon all of these categories.  
This one-hour course will provide an overview of the characteristics of various forms of
harassment and what can be done to create a harassment-free work environment.  It
addresses how workplace harassment is defined, how to confront workplace harassment, and
how to prevent it.  It also offers advice on selecting the best course of action to take should
you find yourself involved in an incident of harassment.  If you have questions about
harassment either during or after this course, please contact the designated human resources
professional at your company who is trained in this area.  SkillSoft's Legal Compliance courses
are developed and maintained with subject matter support provided by the Labor,
Employment, and Employee Benefits Law Group of the law firm of Sheehan Phinney Bass +
Green PA.
Target Audience=Managers, supervisors, and employees.
Duration=1.0 hours

Interpersonal Communications: The Process
Description: It is almost impossible to be productive in today's business environment without
being an effective communicator.  This is particularly true if achievement of your goals depends
on your ability to influence others.  You need to be able to communicate your ideas,
instructions, thoughts, and feelings accurately.  This is not as easy as it may seem, and
ineffective communication is often at the core of a high proportion of the errors,
misunderstandings, and conflicts that occur in the workplace.  This course is designed to give
you an understanding of the prime causes of poor communication, and, more importantly, the
skills required to minimize their impact.
Target Audience=Those within the organization whose roles require them to achieve results
by being able to influence other people such as colleagues, senior managers, or clients.  Also
anyone who has a responsibility for managing, supervising, or leading staff.
Duration=3.0 hours

Privacy and Information Security
Description: Information about individuals is used by businesses to provide customers with a
huge array of targeted goods and personalized services that consumers have come to expect.
If it lands in the wrong hands, this same information can result in harm to the very individuals
it was meant to serve.  The protection of an individual's personal information has business
implications that extend beyond the privacy of any one individual.  Private information relative
to certain businesses and industries is protected by various laws.  For example the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) laws protect private medical information.  
Many states have enacted their own laws, and the federal government is regulated by the
Privacy Act of 1974.  Legislatures are increasingly responding to calls for greater protection of
private information, and stories of improper disclosures of large volumes of private information
receive prominent media attention.  At present, there is no broad, general federal law
protecting the privacy of customer information; most protections are aimed at particular types
of information (such as medical or student records, for example) or particular types of
businesses (such as medical providers, banks, and financial services businesses, for example).
Customers and consumers expect their information to be protected and businesses that
recognize the need to make privacy part of their business strategy, are ahead of the game.  
Many companies have gone to great lengths to protect information using technological
advances.  However, the ability of a business to protect private information it collects as part
of its business is only as strong as its weakest link - the human factor - something that
technology just can't overcome.  This course is aimed at helping individuals who work with
private information understand the ways that this information can be disclosed inadvertently.
It will ensure that private information doesn't fall into the wrong hands.  SkillSoft's Legal
Compliance courses are developed and maintained with subject matter support provided by
the Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Law Group of the law firm of Sheehan Phinney
Bass + Green PA.
Target Audience=All employees, especially those who have access to private information.
Duration=1.0 hours

Rightful Employment Termination
Description: One of the most difficult things you will do as a manager is to terminate an
employee.  Understandably, employees who are being terminated - regardless of the reason
for the termination - may feel angry, frustrated, or betrayed.  They may want someone to
blame for their plight, and if the termination is not handled properly, your company could find
itself defending against a wrongful termination lawsuit.  Further, even if the termination is
handled properly, an employee may file a claim anyway, and your company must be prepared
to successfully defend the termination through appropriate decision making and
documentation.  It is important for a company to be able to manage its workforce to
accommodate the demands of its business.  If employees are not performing as expected - or
if the company experiences a change in the business and fewer people are needed to perform
the work - some hard decisions must be made.  Employers can minimize the risk of being
involved in wrongful termination lawsuits, or being held liable in the event that they are
defending wrongful termination lawsuits, by following some basic guidelines during the hiring
process and managing employees' performance during their tenure.  Although most
employees are at will (meaning that an employer can terminate them at any time, for any
reason or no reason, as long as it is not an illegal reason), in reality, a termination for no
reason is likely to result in a wrongful termination claim.  It is much more practical, as well as
legally defensible, if there is a legitimate, well documented reason for the termination, and if
the termination is handled in an ethical and fair way.  This course is designed to give you an
overview of how to rightfully terminate an employee due to a layoff, performance problems, or
misconduct while avoiding or being able to successfully defend wrongful termination claims.
