The Seven Deadly Sins of Human Resources and Employment Law
No employer consciously invites lawsuits. Sometimes lawsuits are simply unavoidable, and businesses can chalk them up to the cost of doing business. Most of the time, however, if employers follow a few basic tenets, they can avoid unnecessary litigation. This presentation will identify common missteps made by employers that are loosely linked to the “Seven Deadly Sins.” While the concepts of the deadly sins are broad strokes, the participants will be able to apply them to specific situations in a practical manner through examples and scenarios discussed in the presentation.
