The Top 10 Litigant Issues for HR

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION FOR THIS GEM MEETING!
Law & Legislation Content Area

Managing your employees is a daily opportunity. Come and learn how you may avoid legal pitfalls that exist when investigating employee concerns internally (and externally). Learn 10 key rules to avoid negative impacts to your company and at the same time retain your good employees.

Learning Objectives:
1. Employment lawsuits can be avoided if supervisors follow 10 basic rules.  
2. The same 10 rules that prevent lawsuits, also help to keep valuable and productive team members from resigning.
3. The worst thing a good employee can do to you is leave; the worst thing a bad employee can do to you is stay, until they’re fired, then file a lawsuit asserting they were fired unfairly.   
 
Speaker: Chad Shultz, Partner, Gordon & Rees, LLP

Chad A. Shultz is a partner in Gordon & Rees’s Atlanta office.  He defends employee lawsuits and advises clients on avoiding litigation and managing lawsuits through proactive policies and supervisor training.  He received his J.D. degree from the University of South Dakota and his L.L.M. from Emory University School of Law.
