Read Frequently Asked Questions

This 90 minute webinar on legal HR documentation will address why documentation is important in every employment decision you make. Learn from real life lessons, from actual court cases, of how documentation helped an employer to win its case and how wrong documentation ensured a loss.

Why Should You Attend:

As a labor and employment law attorney, you are always reviewing documentation that supports your client’s version of what happened. As a human resource professional, you look at documentation so that you can approve a termination recommended by the supervisor. But as a supervisor, your focus is usually more on getting production done, and you “forget” to document that you had to tell a subordinate three times to do a task. You put off doing those performance appraisals. Documentation is critical. But how do you do it right?

This session will address why documentation is important in every employment decision you make. Yet, poor documentation will hurt you more than no documentation at all. We will discuss real life lessons, from actual court cases, of how documentation helped an employer to win its case and how documentation ensured a loss.
