9/21: Human Resources - Best Practices to Avoid an Employee Lawsuit
Presenter: Jim Sikora - Landerholm
Description: Of all the expenses a small business incurs, few are as significant, and perhaps avoidable, as employment litigation. Business owners who take a consistent and thorough approach to employment policies, documentation, and training can be less likely to find themselves facing employment litigation or better positioned to defend claims that do arise. In this workshop, you will learn about best practices for employment practices and strategies for addressing common employment situations that arise in the course of the employment relationship.
