Career Survival for First Line Supervisors

Date: Tuesday, April 23, 2024 | 08:30 AM to 12:30 PM

The “First Line Supervisor” is one of the most important and challenging assignments an employee can be tasked with during their career. They are the first line personnel who turn policy into action. They are required to provide leadership at all times, and their personnel will look for guidance and support from them during critical incidents. Making good decisions is crucial, and the First Line Supervisor needs to understand the importance of following current case law, agency rules, and policies to reduce liability and career failure.

New Jersey is one of the most plaintiff-friendly states, and liability claims can negatively affect the agency’s resources and reputation. Identifying the challenges of the assignment and preparing our personnel for the future will assist them with becoming successful leaders.

Purpose: This is a risk management program that was designed for First-Line Supervisors. Once this training is completed, the student will be able to identify the risks associated with their assignment, reduce liability claims, and understand the importance of their leadership role.

Goals: Liability reduction through training - topics include but are not limited to:

  • Leadership and Organizational Responsibilities
  • Decision Making Procedures
  • Reducing Liability Claims
  • Understanding Harassment and Retaliation in the Workplace
