Description:

Retaliation is the #1 claim filed with the EEOC, so it very well may be your biggest legal threat.

If an employee is subjected to an adverse employment action, such as a demotion, suspension, or firing, after engaging in a protected activity (including filing a harassment or discrimination claim or taking part in a workplace investigation), you could be in for a heap of costly legal trouble.

But what should you do if this employee happens to be terrible at his job, or is incapable of showing up on time? Must you turn a blind eye to legitimate performance issues now that he has engaged in protected conduct?

The EEOC anti-retaliation protection is meant to cover any employer action that “might well deter a reasonable employee from complaining about discrimination.” So you need to be doubly careful not to do anything that might deter other employees from engaging in a protected activity.

If you’re nervous about walking this dangerous tightrope, as many employers understandably are, you won’t want to miss our in-depth webinar. Our speaker will teach you how to take a legally sound, uniform approach to employment documentation and discipline that will minimize the threat of costly retaliation claims.

You’ll learn:

  • What constitutes retaliation under federal law, and how best to avoid legal battles connected with perceived or real adverse employee actions that supervisors and managers may have taken (possibly unbeknownst to HR)
  • When a valid retaliation claim may arise—even when what the employee does is against the rules—and how to avoid it
  • Training and coaching essentials for line managers and supervisors, so you minimize the risk of retaliation claims and consistently reinforce your formal anti-retaliation policy
  • How to carefully and discreetly investigate complaints of discrimination or harassment
  • Why consistency is key—and examples showing how to highlight the consistent application of your workplace policies in defense of retaliation claims
  • Best practices for employee documentation—and how to make the paper trail work to your benefit (and how poorly drafted documentation could work to your detriment)
  • How to handle a situation where discipline or other employment action is warranted for something wholly unrelated to the employee’s protected activity
  • What to do if an employee files a retaliation claim against your company with the EEOC
  • What to put in your EEOC position statement so it stands up to agency scrutiny

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.
