Managing the Unmanageable - How to Manage Difficult Employees While Minimizing Litigation Risks
Have you met “Slow Sarah”, “Cathy the Complainer”, “Daniel the Do-Gooder” or “Thomas the Tattle-tale”? These seemingly dedicated employees can often create conflict and discord within the workplace. With so many legally “protected categories” it often seems impossible to properly manage the problem employee within the confines of the law while at the same time focus-ing on the business needs of the company.
This seminar will provide the Human Resources Professional with practical tips in appropriately handling difficult employees with an eye towards litigation avoidance and company harmony.
