Such prestigious recognition from HRE certainly underscores how beneficial effective wage and hour training can be in reducing costly litigation
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 3, 2008
ELT, a leading provider of online compliance training, won the 2008 Human Resource Executive Top Training Product of the Year award for its Wage & Hour course. The award is given to the HR and training products that the editors of Human Resource Executive (HRE) believe represent the best vendor products introduced to the market during the past 12 months.
HRE scrutinized each award entry for innovation, value, ease of use and overall quality. ELT’s Wage & Hour program, the first online course on the market to train both employees and mangers on critical wage and hour rules, and to automatically configure legal content based on a learner’s state location, clearly exceeded this criteria.
The fastest growing area of employment law risk, wage and hour class actions now outnumber all other discrimination class actions combined, with settlements averaging $23.5M at the federal level and $24.4 million at the state level. ELT’s Wage & Hour course actually helps employers mitigate this enormous risk by training employees to avoid common mistakes, and as importantly, by establishing invaluable legal defenses for the organization in the event of a lawsuit. “Such prestigious recognition from HRE certainly underscores how beneficial effective wage and hour training can be in reducing costly litigation,” said Shanti Atkins, President & CEO of ELT. “ELT is thrilled that HRE has chosen a course as important as Wage & Hour as one of its Top Training Products of 2008.”
“ELT has managed to take a dry and confusing topic like wage and hour, and make it totally accessible and entertaining for employees. This is the kind of program that actually has an impact on employee behavior and can help employers control a burgeoning area of risk,” said David Shadovitz, Editor & Publisher of Human Resource Executive Magazine.
