It seems like an impossible balancing act. No matter how exceptional your management skills, you will have employees that you need to discipline. In all likelihood you will have employees that you need to dismiss, yet doing so could get you sued. Even when you have an at-will employment relationship which you think protects you, employees and ex-employees are suing and winning. At this workshop you will learn to discipline and discharge without leaving yourself open to a lawsuit.
CRITICAL ISSUES ON THE AGENDA:
 
A. Employment at-Will & Exceptions
  • Current State of the Law
  • Exceptions to Employment at-Will
  • Blowing the Whistle & Employment at-Will
B. Avoiding Tort Claims in Employment
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
  • Negligent Hiring and Retention
  • Invasion of Privacy
  • Defamation
  • Assault and Battery
  • False Imprisonment
  • Fraud
