MSCJA 612 - Pro-seminar in Criminal Justice Personnel Management

Credits: 3 Credit Hours
This is a graduate level course designed to examine personnel management in criminal justice by looking at how individuals, groups, organizations, and employment law statutes impact the agencies’ policies for personnel management. This course covers areas such as employment law, decision-making, leadership, communication, group and organizational politics, organizational structure, organizational culture, and organizational change. This course provides an in-depth analysis of the common law and statutory principles that affect modern employment, Federal and State regulation of the employment relationship, including Wage and Hour Laws; EEO Affirmative Action Programs; Employment Benefits; Insurance; Workers’ Compensation; Safety and Health; Employees’ Personal Rights; and Collective Bargaining Legislation. Among the topics we will cover are: the nature of the employment contract, the at-will rule and its limitations, employee mobility issues (e.g., covenants not to compete), layoffs and unemployment insurance, dignitary interests (e.g., employee privacy), wage and hour law, and employment discrimination law. The course will include alternative dispute and arbitration practices.
