Trouble comes in all shapes and sizes. Any employer who’s ever been targeted for an agency investigation or audit, threatened with fines or penalties, or hit with a lawsuit will agree that an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. The steps you take to stay in compliance now can most assuredly help you stay out of serious trouble later.

In their presentation titled “Avoiding litigation after an employee leaves,” McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Michael Lauderdale and Josh Cline discuss many considerations employers need to be mindful of when terminating employees, including:

  • Termination meeting best practices
  • Severance agreements
  • Unemployment claims
  • Workers’ compensation
  • EEOC charges and other litigation demands
