Sheedy earns Cornell Employment Law Certificate

Dan Sheedy recently earned a Certificate in Employment Law from Cornell University. This certificate is designed to establish a structured framework for analysis of workplace legal issues and increase understanding of employment laws and regulations in order to deal effectively with labor-related legal issues in the workplace. The courses addressed  key employment law requirements in the United States (equal employment opportunity, leave, compensation, safety, employee relations, discrimination…) while providing guidance on the implementation of employment policies and practices in countries with different legal systems.  The courses concluded with a study of best practices in developing HR policies and practices in multinational settings.  Dan is utilizing the learning from this course to provide more effective and deeper coaching for leaders in complex organizations that increasingly are seeking advisory services on human capital issues.
