Labor and Human Resources

LHR 100 prepares you for the role that work and employment will play in your life, as well as introducing you to the fields of human resource management and employment relations. We explore how work and employment impact people's lives financially, socially, and psychologically. We examine several critical workplace issues and employment processes, including basic legal rights, applying for jobs, compensation, benefits, and performance evaluation. As some workplaces recognize labor unions, you are introduced to the role that they play in American workplaces, as well as organizing and collective bargaining processes. Finally, we explore globalization’s impact on work and employment in the USA and worldwide.
