At The Podium
Operation: Sanity! — Dealing with the traps and pitfalls of employee terminations
It’s a jungle out there, and no one knows that better than the HR and benefits professionals who take on the dangers, thrills and challenges of the workplace every day. Whether it’s a maze of state and federal rules and regulations to navigate, common traps and lesser-known pitfalls to avoid, or obstacles to overcome, you need a guide to help you on your quest. EmployerLINC 2012: “Adventures in HR,” McAfee & Taft’s annual employment and employee benefits seminar, offers practical solutions to everyday adventures in the workplace.
Terminations are never easy, but how do you deal with an angry employee who feels he’s been unfairly discharged and is intent on filing a lawsuit? During this breakout, we show that the best way to “win” a lawsuit is to avoid it in the first place. We cover the do’s, don’ts and best practices for implementing terminations and how basic management and interpersonal skills go a long way toward diffusing the anger of a discharged employee.
