Title:

Effective Strategies To Document Employee Discipline

SKU:WC-1021650
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty:
Description:

Average jury verdicts in wrongful termination cases can exceed a million dollars in some states. The vast majority of these verdicts might have been prevented had proper documentation been in place at the time of termination.

Review the legal significance that documentation plays in the discipline and termination process. Review legally required documentation to support employee terminations and discipline, and discuss best practices for new hire paperwork, employee handbooks, and effective performance evaluation systems.

Additionally, we will review the types of documentation that juries have historically liked and disliked, and cover best practices for preparation of significant documentation related to the termination process, including termination letters, severance agreements and letters of reference.

Gain a solid grasp of the legal pitfalls of poorly prepared documentation, and an understanding of how to prepare documentation to support employee discipline and terminations.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
