INTERVIEW

Find a person who works in a human resources area (this can include a business owner who has employees, as he or she IS the human resources department!). Interview the chosen person and gather the information listed below.

Ask that person to explain to you:

1. How did you received your employment law training, how frequently this training takes place, whether the training is adequate for themselves and most people in their field.

Have the person tell you 2 different times, in the course of their work, that they have had to make legal based decisions (this can include dealing with harassment, discrimination, firing, etc.). Ask specific questions regarding the scenarios to help you be able to understand what occurred and relay the information to me in writing.

2. Please explain 2 occasions that you had to make a legal based decision. Please explain in details.

Be sure to ask the person whether or not they followed their legal training and knowledge and if not, why not. Finally, ask whether or not they felt well trained enough, at the time, to handle the situations that arose.

3. Did you follow your legal training and knowledge if not, why not? Did you feel well trained enough, at the time, to handle the situations that arose?

The last part of your interview requires you to give the person a fictional scenario where he will be involved in a work based legal dilemma. Find out what he or she would do in this situation and why. Make the scenario, for your interviewee, a difficult one.
