This seminar is designed for human resource professionals, accountants, business owners and managers.
Discharge and documentation issues occupy an increasing amount of management’s time. Not only is the number of employee/employer lawsuits increasing dramatically, but so too are the causes as well as the types of actions.
Keeping abreast of current developments has never been a more challenging task for management. To avoid loss of time, adverse publicity, legal fees and costly verdicts, personnel professionals must know the latest developments and defenses.
This seminar will provide:
• The most significant federal and state legislative and case law developments in discharge and documentation.
• In addressing these developments, the faculty will bring to this program practical solutions for addressing these problems and will gladly answer questions about these subjects.
