"Discrimination complaints hit record highs"
"DOL turns up heat on pay mistakes"
"Recession leads to spike in employment lawsuits”
More lawsuits + an enforcement-focused Obama administration = more reasons to train your supervisors about their employment law responsibilities.
Do your supervisors know the job-interview questions that can result in legal action? Or which words written in performance evaluations are almost GUARANTEED to trigger discrimination lawsuits?
Do they understand the recent changes to employment-related laws, and how the new administration is cracking down on employer mistakes?
If not, their lack of basic employment-law knowledge is putting your organization at risk. Join nationally recognized employment-law attorney Maria Greco Danaher for practical answers and compliance tips on the Six Critical Risk Areas in which supervisors most often fail. You and your supervisors will learn:
1. Which questions asked during the hiring process can set up your organization for a discrimination or ADA lawsuit.
2. Which words on performance evaluations can support an employee’s claim of discriminatory treatment.
3. How day-to-day supervisory decisions can lead, over time, to a claim of hostile environment, based on supervisors’ inconsistent actions.
4. How a supervisor’s involvement in the organization’s problem-solving process can magnify an employee’s bias claim.
5. How disciplinary mistakes made by supervisors can cause employees to believe they’re targeted due to age, sex, race or another protected characteristic.
6. Why the termination process is the most common basis for employee lawsuits, and which careless errors can magnify that risk.
Employment Law 101 for Supervisors is the perfect way to help supervisors understand the implications of their actions and how those actions might inadvertently be supporting lawsuits against your organization – and possibly against supervisors or you personally!
