Why Should You Attend:

Chances are almost 100% that you as an employer, at some point, will need to settle a case with an employee. Whether the settlement comes because the employee threatens to sue, or because the employer is seeking to resolve a potential problem, the result is the same. Settlements are fantastic tools for resolving employee disputes: they are generally quick, quiet and absolute.

But settlement agreements offer a myriad of problems as well as solutions. Issues arising in EEOC violations, confidentiality hurdles, tax consequences, Fair Labor Standards Act issues, ADEA breaches, right-to-know laws, and numerous other concerns can plague an unsuspecting employer. Done incorrectly, you can end up with a worse headache than if you had litigated the case. This program will trace the issues that can arise with these contracts, and give attendees a toolbox to identify and fix red flags before they become a problem.

Topic Background:

When an employee threatens to sue his or her employer, the typical result is a settlement. In fact, more than 80% of all cases are settled outside the court room. These agreements often are quick, are confidential, allow for the former employee to provide consulting services, and provide cheap resolution considering the waiver of rights involved.

What many employers don’t realize is that there are dozens of pitfalls for settlement agreements. From tax ramifications to FLSA violations to right-to-know laws, there are a multitude of legal issues that can hassle employers.
