But it’s counter-productive to stretch employees to the breaking point..."
Most managers have heard HR's mantra:  “Document, document, document.”  But that doesn’t mean they have been taught how to keep records of important hiring and disciplinary conversations.  “If you’re ever hauled into court to testify in a lawsuit against your organization, what you say, and how you say it, can sink your defense—or help you win,” says Patrick DiDomenico founding editor of The HR Specialist. “And more than your credibility may be on trial; you could even be held personally liable for some discriminatory acts.”
Even among the employed, stressful economic times make for stressed-out workers. Layoffs often mean a lot more work for the remaining workers. Even the fear of layoffs can keep workers from focusing. And high unemployment rates mean fewer options to ‘job hop,’ so many unhappy workers are simply staying put. The result can be workplace negativity that insidiously harms productivity. The editor of The HR Specialist recommends six ways managers can nip negativity in the bud and earn back trust from employees:

Your Office Coach, Marie McIntyre explains how to keep negativity from infecting the workplace to boost employee morale (and avoid lawsuits).
The legendary Pony Express officially ceased operations 150 years ago this month—put out to pasture by the transcontinental telegraph. Since November 1861 when the last run of the Pony Express was completed, labor conditions in the United States have improved dramatically. To illustrate just how far employment law has changed, The HR Specialist asked the editor of the HR Specialist's Ohio Employment Law newsletter, Jon Hyman, to offer his analysis of today's labor law violations in a typical pony express job posting.  Can you spot the violations in this want ad from the 1860s?
Need an employment background check?  Beware: Google, Facebook and other social media have changed everything.  While smart employers and HR professionals never hire a candidate without an employment background check, even background checks themselves can lead to legal pitfalls. Before you google, you must do these two things first...
Phil Ash, publisher of Capitol Information Group, Inc., announces a name change of its former National Institute of Business Management division. The group will now be known as Business Management Daily (BMD). “The change to ‘Business Management Daily’ better reflects not just the pace of business today but also the timeliness of our content, which features multiple daily updates via our websites and e-letters,” according to Ash.

With HRCI-approved audio recordings, professionals can work toward recertification at their convenience—from home, while commuting or, yes, even while walking the dog via MP3 or CD player.
