Human Resources Rules and Regulations

Policies and Regulations to Follow in HR

Human resource laws and regulations include both state and federal laws which govern human resource management and employment issues. Key federal HR rules include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals on the basis of color, race, sex, religion, or national origin. The Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) establishes the federal minimum wage, as well as standards for overtime pay and child labor. These are just two of the many federal and state laws and regulations that govern HR practices. There are many more regulations and procedures to follow to ensure compliance. HR Education Network works hard to keep you abreast of new HR policies and procedures with relevant webcasts. Sessions like “Balancing Employee and Employer Rights” also earn Continuing Education Credits for HR professionals.

Why HR laws are important

HR laws provide requirements for employers to follow—and often document—fairness practices related to hiring, training, pay, benefits, and virtually all other activities and responsibilities related to human resource management. Subsequently, it is important for HR professionals to keep updated to changes in interpretation, or implementation, of these laws. Employee & Labor Resources is one of the many sections in the catalog of online courses.
