PAPER IS THE EMPLOYER'S BEST FRIEND - Effective Documentation in Employee Relations, Discipline, Arbitration and Severance/Releases


Effective paperwork is the key to a solid defense in employment litigation. What you do up front can make a difference later, both in the workplace and in the courtroom.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • Offer letters
  • Warnings and probation
  • Termination
  • Leaves of absence
  • Disability accommodation and the interactive dialogue
  • Arbitration
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Exempt vs. non-exempt status (involving the employee)
