Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will focus on isolating employee documentation issues and addressing them to make sure your organization stays prepared in the event of workplace litigation.

Why Should You Attend:

Workplace litigation is at record high levels. The average lawsuit settlement is $165,000 and if the case goes to a jury, the cost can soar to over $1,000,000. Failing to appropriately document employee behavior and performance is one of the top reasons businesses lose money in litigation and settlement awards. In order to protect your company from expensive litigation due to discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, etc., employers must document workplace issues appropriately.

Inappropriate documentation of performance, misbehavior and/or misconduct carries the same effect as trying to avoid or ignore the issues. Additionally, poorly written documentation can mean the difference between a good defense and no defense at all when faced with litigation. It is crucial that employers document performance, misbehavior, and misconduct appropriately.

This webinar will assist in ensuring employers are documenting issues appropriately to protect their assets as well as not spend valuable time dealing with unnecessary litigation.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Progressive discipline overview
  • When and why to document
  • What to include in the documentation
  • Words to avoid in documentation
  • How to communicate the documentation
