Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Labor and employment law attorneys constantly review documentation that support the client’s version of what happened. A human resource professional, on the other hand, looks at documentation to approve a termination recommended by the supervisor. But a supervisor’s focus is usually more on getting production done, and you may miss out on documenting instances such as asking a subordinate three times to do a task. You 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 with.

Is documentation easy? No. Is it critical? Yes. But how do you do it right? This webinar will discuss best practices for legal HR documentation. Attendees will learn how to use documentation to get the best performance out of your employees and to defend your decision making process.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Why policies and procedures are an important part of documentation.
  • Policies/procedures that are legally required before misconduct occurs.
  • Policies/procedures that are recommended before misconduct occurs.
  • Can you take disciplinary action if you don’t have a policy/procedure with regard to a particular problem?
  • Why not understanding the difference between misconduct/performance can hurt you in documentation.
  • How to fill out a performance appraisal accurately.
  • Real life lessons from actual court cases – what went right in documentation?
