Garvey Schubert Barer believes strongly in the value of employment-related trainings. Training is a cost-effective way for a business, particularly its managers, to learn how to knowledgeably and successfully prevent and resolve a variety of workplace issues.

Our training sessions provide practical, easy-to-understand content and are tailored for the particular audience. To keep attendees interested and engaged, the sessions mix lecture, visuals and audience participation. In almost all our trainings, the focus is on having people learn by doing. Real-world scenarios are worked through by participants, equipping them with practical tools. Participants consistently rate our trainings very highly and our speakers are considered some of the best in their fields.

These training programs cover a broad spectrum of topics. Those commonly requested include the following:

  • Basic managerial skills such as interviewing and hiring, performance reviews, and discipline and termination
  • Proper administration of injured and ill workers, including Family and Medical Leave Act and Washington State's Family Care Act basics, Americans with Disabilities Act and state disability law, and managing chronic absenteeism
  • Wage and hour basics including employee classification, meal and rest periods, on-call and travel time, and working off the clock
  • Investigating harassment and other complaints
  • Preventing harassment/discrimination
  • Guidelines for legally permissible conduct by managers encountering union-organizing activity
  • Preventing and addressing workplace violence, fraud and theft
  • Diversity and cultural awareness seminars and workshops
