Retaliation 101: How To Avoid Or Manage Retaliation Claims

Webinar: ID# 1015535
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Retaliation claims continue to be on the rise. In 2014, the EEOC investigated the highest number of retaliation claims in its entire history. In fact, 42.8% of all charges filed were retaliation claims.

The SEC saw a similar increase and reported that both the number of whistleblower claims and the magnitude of the financial awards stemming from those claims "were record-breaking" in FY 2014. Without even accounting for state law and common law retaliation claims, the risk is high for businesses today, and the financial implications can be colossal.

Human Resources Departments need to be aware of how broadly – or narrowly - retaliation is defined and what internal steps can be taken to reduce the risk of claims.
