California Employer Advisor Webinar
Live webinar coming Tuesday, July 17, 2012
10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon (Pacific)
Q. What's HR's secret weapon for defending against discrimination or retaliation charges?
A. Well-written, objective HR documentation that accurately and succinctly chronicles the employee's performance-, conduct-, or attendance-based issues.
Any labor and employment attorney will tell you that one of the keys to being able to defend—or even prevent—litigation rests in sound HR documentation practices. But what does that mean in actual practice?
Join us for an in-depth webinar on July 17th and find out. You'll learn:
- The key components that all good progressive-discipline documents—including warnings, disciplinary notices, or termination letters—share
- The practices you should put in place so your employment documentation is consistent and fair
- How to accurately convey employment objectives, expectations, and policy violations, as well as the consequences of not improving on performance issues
- Language to use so employees are actually being held accountable for improving their own performance or conduct
- How to document attendance issues following the expiration of workers' protected leave under state and federal leave laws
- How to handle a situation where there may be a medical or psychological reason behind a worker's performance or conduct-related issues so you don't violate the ADA or FEHA
- The nightmare scenarios that have resulted from poor documentation practices for countless employers—and how to avoid making those mistakes
