In this presentation, attorneys from Fisher & Phillips will walk you through each step of a human resources lawsuit, and provide you with practical guidance to reduce your risk of liability. Learn the steps to follow to help ensure that you and your company are avoiding the risks of wrongful discharge, discrimination, retaliation and other common employment-related claims.
