You’re More Prone to Discrimination & Retaliation Claims Than You Think

Think “employment at will” protects you from former employees’ claims? Think again. Whistleblowing and discrimination are just two ways you can run into legal trouble when firing workers, and those are headaches you don’t want to invite.

In this comprehensive webinar, labor attorney Susan Desmond will walk you through sound practices for employee termination—ones that can minimize future litigation. Desmond will outline public policy exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine, as well as whistleblower exceptions, so that you full understand your liability for discrimination, retaliation, and other employee claims.

After attending this instructive session, you will understand your company’s obligations to its employees under federal law. You’ll also know how to handle tricky termination decisions—such as when employees have engaged in protected activity. Don’t mishandle this important task. Arm yourself with the knowledge you need to make a sound termination decision and conduct a proper termination meeting
