Employee Discipline For Conduct Outside Of Work

Learn about recent legislation and court cases involving some of the hottest topics in employment law, including employee discipline for blogging, web-based employer trashing, workplace dating and extramarital affairs, and physical appearance such as weight, tattoos and body piercing.

Our experienced professionals will discuss permissible discipline for employees violating conflict of interest policies, including engaging in unfair competition with the employer.

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.
