HR PoliciesManagement is rewarding, but challenging. Part of maintaining your managerial mojo is keeping up with policy change and legal issues. To make that daunting task easy and pleasant, Organizational Learning & Development is pleased to partner with UAB HR Employee Relations to offer new webinar called "HR Policies Every UAB Manager Needs to Know Webinar."

The webinar will deal with case-style situations and UAB's response policy for issues where answers might not be readily apparent. In addition to updating managerial knowledge of discrimination policies, FLSA, FMLA and On the Job injury, the webinar will address less frequently encountered topics, like break time for nursing mothers and sick time donation.

This webinar will be held on August 19th at 2:00 p.m. Webinar attendance requires only a computer with a browser and sound, usually in the form of headphones. Click here to register for this important, informative event.

Need to Drop a Class?

We all have emergencies from time to time. We prefer that you drop the class as far ahead of time as possible. To drop a class, log in to the UAB Faculty & Staff Learning System. Once you are logged in, select the upcoming class and click the Drop this Class button.

Cancellation of a Class Due to Minimal Amount of Students

Organizational Learning & Development reserves the right to cancel a class if the appropriate number of attendees is not met. Every attempt will be made to notify participants of cancellations in a timely manner. However, if the required number of participants are not in attendance at the designated start time, instructors may cancel the class and you will be asked to register for the next available class. Instructors will wait 15 minutes before a decision to cancel a class.

Cancellation of a Class Due to Other Circumstances

Organizational Learning & Development also reserves the right to cancel scheduled classes when circumstances require such action. Classes may be cancelled if registrations fall short of the minimum required participation level. Every attempt will be made to notify registered participants of cancellations as soon as changes occur. Participants should check this website frequently to obtain the most updated information.


Organizational Learning & Development requests that everyone use our online registration system to view scheduled classes, view your history, schedule classes, and/or cancel classes. However, if you or someone you know needs assistance registering for a class, you may call Stephani Collins at 205.934.3359. This is only for people who need assistance or do not have online access.
