Title:

Ironclad Employment Documentation: How To Legally Support Your Actions And Minimize Risks

SKU:WC-1023887
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

You fire an employee for poor performance. He says the termination was in retaliation for filing a race discrimination claim against the company. Will you have the employment documentation to back up your decision and avoid a costly lawsuit?

Whether it’s a discrimination case, a retaliation claim, or both, the story is the same. It’s your word against the word of the employee, unless you have solid employment documentation to support the reasons for your decision.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a judge, or the jury will want to examine your records of the steps and actions that led to the firing, discipline, or other adverse employment action.

Even if you have written documentation, it may not help if it hints at subjectivity or makes you seem unreasonable. While it’s always important to show what you did, it’s even more important that you be able to prove why you did it.

Here’s where good documentation comes in. But, what makes it work? What should you include in any write-up and what should you never say?

Join us when Susan Fentin, a skilled employment attorney, will teach you practical tips on how to create written employment documentation for performance, conduct, and disciplinary issues in a way that’s objective and, most importantly, legally defensible.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Master the toughest aspects of employment documentation
  • Address performance and conduct-based issues with actionable language that focuses on the behavior, not the person
  • Include the right amount of detail in describing the employee’s actions
  • Follow-up with the employee to evaluate whether necessary progress has been made
  • Plan the next steps if the employment issue isn’t improving, and how to document your decisions
  • And much more!

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.
