No aspect of the employment relationship produces more angst and lawsuits than discipline and discharge of workers. When a company terminates an employee, the situation is volatile, and the slightest violation of the law – or even the appearance of unfairness – can spark legal action by a disgruntled employee.
Such concerns, however, should not stop a company from disciplining an employee, and terminating him or her when necessary. Taking the proper steps in dealing with such an employee can mean the difference between business success and costly litigation.
This complimentary breakfast session will offer a roadmap on recommended courses of action to follow, and common mistakes to avoid. Case studies will be discussed.
