As a labor and employment law attorney, you are always reviewing documentation that supports your client’s version of what happened. As a human resource professional, you look at documentation so that you can approve a termination recommended by the supervisor. But as a supervisor, your focus is usually more on getting production done, and you “forget” to document that you had to tell a subordinate three times to do a task. You put off doing those performance appraisals. What are they used for anyway? And, as a supervisor, you are often documenting misconduct or performance issues of someone you once worked side by side. Is documentation easy? No. Is it critical? Yes. But how do you do it right?

Join expert speaker Susan Fahey Desmond, in this webinar to understand the value and importance of documentation. Documentation is a concrete evidence of the facts, data and action when it comes to investigating, litigation or any other legal work. Documentation protects employers regarding job performance and related issues, and conversely protects employees against fall employer/supervisor claims.

Session Highlights:

  • Learning effective documentation techniques

  • Learning how policies and procedures can help you but also hurt you

  • Learning how to use documentation to teach your employees

  • Learning what documentation you need to justify a termination decision

  • Learning about your record retention requirements

Why You Should Attend:

In a matter of days, men of stature and respect have found themselves in a tidal wave of sexual harassment and assault claims. Time Magazine calls the women coming forward as “The Silence Breakers.” The recent events show us that those who have remained silent for many years have courage to come forward than ever before. Do your policies withstand scrutiny? Are you prepared to handle the investigation? This webinar will give a refresher of harassment law and will walk you through a real time investigation of a claim – be it made against an entry level employee or against your Chief Executive Officer.

  • Business owners

  • Human resource personnel
