This year we were privileged to have the Chief Executive Officer of Safe Passage Consulting, Tony Casper, presenting alongside our Employment team. Also joining the seminar, we had members of Kegler Brown’s Workers' Compensation and Medical Marijuana practice areas.
Topics are as follows:
"Surviving Your Worst Fear: Documentation + Employment Litigation"; Jane Gleaves
This presentation will outline best practices for accurate and thorough record-keeping with an eye toward litigation. Jane will discuss the ways employers should document any problematic employees or work-place incidents so that their records can be helpful, rather than harmful, in future litigation. She will give examples of both good and bad documentation practices and illustrate how each can affect an employer’s position against a former employee in a lawsuit.
"Closing the Pay Gap: Case Law + Best Practices for Equal Pay"; Erin Cleary Herbst
Erin will identify and explore the gender gap in employment. She will provide an overview of relevant case law, plus tips and strategies for best practices in dealing with the gender pay gap.
