Discipline & Discharge: Keeping Discipline & Termination “N.E.A.T.” and “C.L.E.A.N.”
Presented by: Joseph P. Shelton, Fisher Phillips
Let’s face it, disciplining and terminating employees can be a messy and unpleasant experience. If you are a manager, you’ve in all likelihood had to deal with these difficult situations at least once in your career. Many employment litigation suits filed are by disgruntled employees who felt they were “wrongfully terminated” regardless of the reason. In our presentation, we will discuss how to avoid these situations by using a “N.E.A.T.” and “C.L.E.A.N.” method of discipline and discharge sure to save you headache AND heartache.
A Quick Review of Hot Topics ADA and FMLA
Presented by: Myra K. Creighton, Fisher Phillips
Dealing with ADA and FMLA issues has always been a challenge for employers. As the definition of what is a disability expands, is there anyone who ISN’T disabled? When examining essential job functions, isn’t attendance ALWAYS essential? How much leave is enough? How do you know the employee really is incapacitated? And if there’s no injury, there’s no claim, right? We’ll answer these and other questions that in-house counsel needs to know.
