Jerks at Work – What's an Employer to Do?

Nothing irks like jerks at work. But difficult people in the workplace can be far more than a minor annoyance. They can increase turnover … destroy morale … and even spark employee lawsuits. One company was hit with a $325,000 verdict for allowing workplace bullying to go on – a judgment that was upheld on appeal.

The good news is that there are steps you can take TODAY that will insulate you from risk … improve productivity … and create a happier workplace. Introducing Jerks at Work – What’s an Employer to Do?

Jerks at Work is designed specifically to help you deal with challenging workplace behaviors. You’ll get step-by-step advice on what to do – and when to do it.

Attorney, author and celebrated speaker Jathan Janove combines humor, legal know-how and common sense to help you craft a strategy to deal with the jerks that lurk at work. In this insightful 75-minute recording, you’ll discover:
  • How to make jerk-free values part of your corporate culture
  • Three specific types of training to combat harassment
  • Verbal feedback to a jerk’s offensive behavior
  • Documenting workplace jerkiness – when and how
  • “Mushroom jerks” – how to expose them to the light
  • Seven steps to managing emotional or confrontational jerks
  • Due process and progressive discipline
  • Jerks who sue – good news and bad news
  • And much more!

Do your jerks claim that age, gender or national origin makes them a member of a protected class? Are they saying a “disability” causes (and protects) their jerkiness? Is their union protecting them? Jathan will offer advice on dealing with all these situations – and many others.

And you’ll laugh while you learn. Jathan is consistently recognized as one of the most popular speakers at the annual SHRM conference and our Labor & Employment Law Advanced Practices (LEAP) Symposium.
