Human Resource Orientation

Course Description




The federal government requires every company to provide certain key information to new employees about their rights under the law. Even more, the better we train new employees, the less likely a company is to encounter legal issues moving forward. ChalkBites provides a tool to quickly and effectively train both in-office and remote employees on their rights and responsibilities.

It’s also convenient that the employee can learn on their phone, desktop or tablet. At the end of each learning assignment is a short quiz to verify that the information was learned. A supervisor is notified once the assignment is complete. Easy.
Some of the courses included in the basic HR course include:

  • How to Identify and Handle Harassment
  • Understanding Your Rights Under the EEOC
  • What are Your Rights Under the FLSA
  • Your Rights Under the FLSA
  • Social Media and the Company Brand

Some companies will add to this course training videos adapted specifically from the company handbook, which explains more clearly issues related to insurance, company holidays, dress code and other key issues that are company specific. ChalkBites has an affordable process where we video-fy the company handbook.
