Dealing With Employees Who Have Been Charged With A Crime
|Date / Time:
One of the most perplexing problems that can confront an employer arises after the employer discovers that one of its employees has been arrested and charged with a crime.
Under our legal system, the familiar mantra is that an arrested person is innocent until proven guilty. So, what can you do to address situations where an employee has been arrested, or has been charged, or incarcerated for a crime but has not yet been convicted?
For example, can an employer fire such an employee before any charges have been the subject of a formal trial? Alternatively, can the employee be suspended for such an offense and if so, is it justifiable to do so with or without pay?
Because more and more employers are finding themselves faced with this dilemma, this webinar will include a discussion on the legal limits on what you can do when faced with this problem and will also provide useful guidelines on how best to craft workplace policies and procedures to best prepare yourself to address such situations.

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.
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.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
