Fisher & Phillips and Inspired eLearning develop employment law courses

Fisher & Phillips LLP and Inspired eLearning, Inc. have joined together to produce a new series of web-based compliance training courses for supervisors and employees. They have announced the initial release of an updated workplace harassment training program, and plans to release a broad-based suite of courses to train managers in all areas of employment laws and corporate ethics.

Fisher & Phillips is one of the nation’s leading management-side labor and employment law firms, with over 275 attorneys in 27 offices nationwide. Inspired eLearning is one of the most recognized developers of online training programs covering employment law, compliance and ethics. Together, they are developing courses that run the gamut of employment law and compliance issues that are becoming more extensive, complicated and global.

The attorneys at Fisher & Phillips are developing content on subjects that include: sexual harassment, discrimination, social media, hiring, wage and hour compliance and protection of trade secrets. Inspired eLearning produces online courses employers can utilize across their enterprises, including in foreign countries. The company produces courses in 21 languages. Employers also benefit from the Learning Management System (LMS) developed by Inspired eLearning. LMS tracks training completion and provides reports back to management.

Inspired eLearning President Martin Rico said: “Employers are under increased pressure to comply with ever-changing employment laws. They must ensure that their workers understand and comply with laws to help companies avoid fines and litigation. The attorneys at Fisher & Phillips understand what businesses face and they present information in a way that business people and other working professionals understand. In addition to creating the course material, the attorneys are prepared to provide follow-up training at work sites and to assist our clients in reviewing policies, developing codes of conduct, assisting in investigations and managing litigation.”

Fisher & Phillips Managing Partner and Chairman Roger Quillen said: “Our clients have for years benefited from the training our attorneys provide to them both at their workplaces and online. We were looking for a platform to extend this valuable training. Inspired eLearning has the structure, expertise and desire to deliver the best possible training to companies that recognize the importance of keeping their leadership and staff up-to-date on employment law.”

Quillen went on to say that the training is important to medium and large multinational companies. “They face serious challenges in getting training to their people when they’re scattered around the globe.”

Joe Ambash, Managing Partner of Fisher & Phillips’ Boston office and leader of the training project, stated: “Our innovative and creative approach to compliance training combined with Inspired eLearning’s worldwide platform will result in a superior level of training for employers worldwide.”
