Taught by attorney Jeff Risch Register

Effectively resolving discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination charges at the administrative level is essential these days. First, the costs of litigation, even when the employer is on the winning side, has become shocking for most employers. Second, nearly every charge filed now has the potential to result in scrutiny of company policies & practices.

For example, a charge of race discrimination alleging discrimination in discipline and termination for a single charging party has allowed the EEOC to investigate hiring practices resulting in systemic-based/group charges and ultimately leading to class action lawsuits. But, an employer should not have to compromise its principles or run the risk that a financial reward will make its way through the rumor mill and invite even more legal challenges or decrease employee morale. This webinar taught by attorney Jeffrey A. Risch, will provide employers viable options & workable strategies to resolve these charges; without inviting litigation, compromising an employer’s principles or diminishing morale.
Key highlights include:
1) How to obtain early dismissal & avoid the lawsuit;
2) Identifying what information/data should NEVER be provided in any investigation;
3) Moving problematic charges into mediation – identifying these problems early in the process;
4) What NOT to say or do during a mediation or investigation;
5) Obtaining effective releases (tips & recommended NEW language revealed).
