MSL Employment Specialization

Employment, personnel, and human resources professionals must understand the legal and regulatory frameworks that affect the recruiting, hiring, promotion, and firing of employees. The ability to think like a lawyer is an essential skill to work in this area, given the pervasiveness of federal, state, and local laws and regulations and the risks of not knowing the law. MSL students interested in workplace issues of gender and racial equity can explore the topic further with the Center for WorkLife Law.
