Human resources and labor relations are critical factors in the operation of any organization and how they are managed often makes the difference between success or failure of an enterprise. Over the past two decades, there has been a tremendous growth in the need for qualified individuals to manage these functions. Managing human resources in today's complex organizational, legal and economic environment requires professionals with special skills and knowledge in such areas as employee selection, training, appraisal and motivation; compensation and employee benefits programs; employment law and policy - EEO, OSHA, Workers' Compensation, ERISA; employee relations; and dispute resolution. For those in a unionized workplace or who represent labor unions, the above is important and study is essential in collective bargaining, labor law and legislation, union organization and arbitration. The Master of Science in Human Resources Management and Labor Relations is designed to provide advanced study to those who need professional competence in these and related areas.
