Top 10 Ways Supervisors and Managers Create Legal Risks for Your Workplace Under Federal Law - On-Demand/h2>

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how managers and supervisors can create legal trouble under federal law, and how to inform and train them to avoid making those missteps.


 

No employer wants to be in the position of fending off a federal lawsuit—especially if it was an avoidable lawsuit brought about by the legal missteps by management. Needless to say, it can be costly for the organization and, if it was avoidable, it’s all the more frustrating.

Something as simple as a manager or supervisor failing to document an employee’s lackluster performance could result in a lawsuit if that employee gets fired and there is no documentation to back it up. Other mistakes could include FLSA violations regarding wages. If a non-exempt employee is putting in extra hours, she should be getting paid overtime. Other legal risks could be related to anti-discrimination, if one group is being treated differently, or even if comments from a manager or supervisor indicate inappropriate assumptions or favoritism.

In addition, employers and their managers need to be cognizant of the requirements of the ADA and FMLA. If an employee makes claims under these laws, the employer had better be able to show that its actions weren’t related to the employee’s request for leave or accommodation.

How do you train and inform your managers to ensure they don’t cause, inadvertently or not, a legal risk for your company? Use this on-demand webinar and get a playbook on the top 10 legal risks your managers can breed, and how to stop them from setting lawsuits in motion.

  • Recognize the top 10 legal risks that supervisors can create
  • Help managers and supervisors develop best practices to avoid violating federal employment law
  • Appropriately document performance and other employment issues
