A Manager's Guide to Discipline and Documentation
A key role for any manager or supervisor is to ensure employees meet the expectations for appropriate and lawful conduct at work. Dealing with problematic behavior and taking disciplinary action can be stressful. But simply ignoring or avoiding problems is not an option because it may signal to employees that inappropriate behavior is acceptable, and mishandling disciplinary issues may result in employee claims of wrongful termination, discrimination, or retaliation. Consistent and fair procedures, honest communication, and clear expectations can help managers deal with disciplinary issues in a way that improves behavior with fewer negative repercussions. This course explains the principles of effective employee discipline, including the concept of due process in the disciplinary procedure, and it describes how to respond to and document a disciplinary issue appropriately.

Commercial Insider Threat Awareness
Companies face a dual threat to their security: from outsiders trying to access data and systems, and from insiders such as employees, contractors, or partners who misuse their authorized access. Insiders represent a substantial threat because they have knowledge and access to systems, allowing them to bypass security measures through legitimate means. This makes them difficult to detect. To manage potential insider threats, organizations must establish a security framework that protects, detects, and responds to insider risks to systems, assets, and data. This course introduces essential concepts related to insider threats, focusing on employees' role in protecting their company's sensitive data and systems.

Human Trafficking Awareness
Human trafficking - the act of exploiting a person through force, fraud or coercion - is a worldwide problem. Due to its complex nature, and the vulnerable populations it targets, it often goes unnoticed. Many of its victims don't even realize they are being exploited, often feeling shame and blaming themselves for their situation, which makes the discovery of this illegal activity very challenging. Being aware of the signs that human trafficking activity could be taking place in your community or place of employment is a starting point for dealing with this criminal act. This course addresses the mandatory training requirements for hospitality employers in California, Connecticut, and Minnesota, but is suitable for raising awareness of human trafficking in any location or workplace.

I-9 Compliance: Verifying Employment Eligibility of US and Non-US Citizens
Many people come to the United States in search of employment opportunities. While many of these people enter the country legally and have valid work authorization, there are many others who reside in the US illegally. Section 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires employers to hire only individuals who are legally eligible to work in the US. The I-9 form is the key to compliance with this requirement and is used by US employers to verify the identity and work authorization of all individuals hired to work in the United States. The law requires employers to verify the individual’s identity and eligibility for employment by requiring the employee to produce documentation that verifies who they are, and that they are authorized to work in the US. This requirement applies to all employees – US and non-US citizens alike. Therefore, it's important to understand the requirements to be able to comply with the law. This course provides an introduction to I-9 compliance, focusing on the purpose of the form, who must complete it, when to complete it, how to use it to verify employment, and the legal compliance requirements associated with the law. It also provides a brief discussion about employing non-US citizens. These course materials and content are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice.

Integrity in the Workplace
Whistleblowing and ethics in the workplace have been in the headlines over the past few years because high-profile employees have blown the whistle on large public companies, such as Enron and WorldCom. However, integrity and ethics in the workplace are not just for large, high-profile companies. Almost every employer is subject to state or federal laws and regulations, and if the employer does not promote an ethical culture, individual employees with integrity may choose to blow the whistle on their employer's wrongdoing. Whistleblowing isn't just for accountants or lawyers who uncover widespread evidence of fraud. It's also for average, everyday employees who discover illegal or unethical behavior in the workplace, and decide to report it. This course discusses various aspects of corporate ethics, including fraud and abuse associated with financial, safety, health, environmental, and other workplace issues, and the regulatory agencies, laws, and regulations that govern them. The course also discusses how both employers and employees can improve integrity and promote an ethical workplace culture. For employees, it is important to understand how to blow the whistle objectively, and also to understand the general protections afforded to whistleblowers by law, which protect them from retaliation by their employers. For employers, this means implementing policies and practices that promote openness and transparency in the workplace, encouraging employees to report their concerns internally, and rewarding employees and managers for strict compliance with laws and regulations.

Promoting a Substance-free Workplace
Substance abuse is a pervasive problem in society, so it's no surprise that it carries over into the workplace. Substance abusers are more likely to be late or absent from work, change jobs frequently, be less productive, and be involved in workplace accidents. They also tend to have other personal problems outside of work as a result of the substance abuse, which further impairs their ability to concentrate on their work. Successful substance-free workplace programs can result in decreased absenteeism, fewer accidents, less downtime, reduced turnover, and fewer incidents of theft, as well as improving morale and productivity for all employees. This course is designed to provide employees and supervisors with an understanding of the benefits of a substance-free work environment, to help them understand the impact substances have in the workplace and recognize signs of employee substance abuse.

Security Awareness for End Users
The nature of higher education institutions means they must provide relatively open and easy access to resources and services while also protecting these resources from individuals with malicious intentions. Securing the campus network depends largely on end users – specifically students and employees. They have an important role to play in network security. In fact, by taking appropriate action to promote network security, end users will also benefit from increased protection against people looking to take advantage or exploit them personally. This course will explore why campus networks are targeted by hackers and the potential consequences a breach can have for end users and institutions. Best practices for protecting personal, web-enabled devices and safe online behaviors will build awareness of how to stay safe and secure online – which in turn will promote campus network security.
