Why Should You Attend:

A labor and employment law attorney would constantly review documentation that supports the client’s version of what happened. A human resource professional, on the other hand, would analyze the same documentation from another perspective – one that can approve a termination recommended by the supervisor.

But as a supervisor, your focus is usually more on getting production done, and you may forget to document that you had to tell a subordinate three times to do a task. You may put off doing those performance appraisals. And, as a supervisor, you are often documenting misconduct or performance issues of someone you once worked side by side. Is documentation easy? No. Is it critical? Yes. But how do you do it right? This webinar will analyze these situations and offer best practices to handle them.
