This course provides knowledge of the law related to unemployment insurance in Montana. It will explain the law, the procedure that is used, and the administrative system and process. Learn how to respond to an application for unemployment insurance, including the use of exhibits and witnesses, and the effects of a response -- such as whether statements in UI hearings are admissible in other proceedings.
This course also teaches the basics of employee discipline, including when and how to do it effectively and legally, and why documentation is necessary. Learn the requirements of the Montana Wrongful Discharge Act, including when an employee can be legally terminated, the process required by the Statute, and the damages if the employee is not terminated lawfully. The course provides information useful to ensuring that the termination is done correctly, can be justified, is supportable, and is based on employee performance issues, including how to comply with privacy laws and avoid defamation claims. For public employers, the class addresses the requirement that the employee be given just cause related to the termination.
