Monday 06/19/2017 07:00 AM - 08:15 AM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: HR Expertise, Communication, Critical Evaluation | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn how to position facts and communicate to employees to prevent employment litigation. 

Success in any employment lawsuit depends upon the facts of the case. These facts arise well before any lawsuit is filed and often before the threat of a lawsuit is even a blip on the radar screen. This session will identify facts critical to success in employment lawsuits and review the best practices and decisions that generate them. Such facts not only position employers to win employment lawsuits, but can also prevent claims from being filed—which is the best victory of all. This session will show you how to:

  • Create employee confidence in company integrity and fairness with employment decisions. 
  • Communicate performance expectations and discipline effectively. 
  • Resolve employee complaints and reach well-reasoned conclusions in workplace investigations.
