•This workshop will emphasize preventing problems and avoiding the employment law landmines that can lead to costly litigation. All employers throughout the United States are faced with rapid and increasing changes and developments in the area of employment law. Employment-related claims can often result in tremendous employer liability as well as substantial legal expense, and for the manager and/or supervisor involved, such claims can be extremely upsetting, and stressful. For the employer, the real cost of litigation goes well beyond attorney fees and any settlements paid – the cost of lost productivity and lowered morale are debilitating.
•While it is virtually impossible for any employer to eliminate all potential employment litigation, attendees will learn how to lower the risk of employment-related claims by learning such techniques to avoid legal landmines such as: documentation of performance, training employees for success, performance evaluation, consistent treatment, privacy and providing legal references, consistent application of policy, your affirmative duty to act, and addressing a hostile work environment.
