You're Fired... But Maybe Not! Dealing With a Litigious Employee
Program - MC-SHRM General Meeting 7:45*AM-9:00AM (*Registration 7:30AM-7:45AM)
Presented By: Dustin A. Paschal, Attorney - Simon Paschal PLLC
HR employees always have one or two employees that are known to be lawsuit risks. They regularly complain. They threaten lawsuits or are known to have filed lawsuits in the past. They carry the aura of being untouchable.
They are not untouchable. And if you fail to take action, they could taint your workplace and send a negative message to your other employees.
This presentation will teach you how to handle that overly litigious employee - from issuing discipline, to handling complaints, to preparing for any potential or impending litigation that arise. By being prepared, you can handle this employee just like you would any other without your hands tied.
Participant Learning Objectives:
- Review steps to take to minimize the risk of lawsuits from employees
- Discuss effective discipline techniques
- Identify what HR action is useful to lawyers to defeat lawsuits
- Learn how to effectively manage HR functions to minimize disruption caused by problem employees
