ComplianceOnline

Is your company at risk for non-compliance? Is your company a lawsuit waiting to happen?

Employment lawsuits are on the rise. Last year, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforcement collected $372.1 million in monetary damages, the highest recovery in agency history. Also, for the last three years, the EEOC reported a record high number of claims filed by employees.

When employers are not properly prepared for workplace issues, companies could face discrimination suits, litigation, settlements, lawyer fees, unplanned expenses, employee turnover, morale issues, and possible negative community image. This Human Resources and Employment Law Seminar will assist companies in maintaining employment law compliance as well as litigation avoidance.

Whether you are in a small company or a large corporation, possessing knowledge of employment laws and HR practices are essential to business success. The number of employment laws/issues you have to be aware of can be overwhelming. In this seminar, you will learn how to deal with confusing human resource situations and how to apply employment laws correctly.

Are you prepared to protect your organization from expensive litigation and compliance fees? The average lawsuit is $165,000 without lawyer fees. If the case goes to trial it could cost $1,000,000 or more! Also, non-compliance of employment laws can land you in jail.

Vanessa G. Nelson

Vanessa G. Nelson, MSA, SPHR, CLRL
President of Expert Human Resources, LLC

Ms. Nelson is founder and President of award-winning Expert Human Resources, which she founded to help companies maintain employment law compliance, avoid workplace litigation, reduce costs, and increase revenue.

Vanessa established Expert Human Resources in 2009, after observing companies' frustrations with complying with constantly changing employment laws as well as continually dealing with workplace litigations and fines. Vanessa realized that a lot of the litigious situations that businesses encountered could be avoided by their being proactive and implementing updated polices and applying them correctly. Vanessa also recognized that many companies could not afford a full-time HR person, or department, to assist in maintaining compliance with employment laws, as well as applying policies and practices correctly; therefore she established a "portable HR" to accommodate those businesses.

Vanessa is a results-oriented HR Consultant with a unique background in business management, spanning over 29 years at two major medical centers in Michigan. Her expertise includes: HR audits, labor relations, employment laws, employee relations, workplace investigations, and policies and procedures. Additionally, Ms. Nelson has worked with companies to implement processes to improve conflict management and employee relations and conducted harassment training to improve company efficiencies. She has helped companies save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Ms. Nelson received her Master of Science in Administration/Human Resources Management from Central Michigan University, and a Bachelor in Business Management from Northwood University. She holds the Certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) credential from Human Resources Certification Institute, Certified Labor Relations Leader (CLRL) from Michigan State University, and is Six Sigma White Belt certified.
