Webinar – “Prevent One EPL – Documentation on Trial”

November 16, 2017
10:00am - 12:30pm
Human Resources Management and Staff, Organizational Managers and Supervisors, and Risk Management


You have repeatedly heard the employment attorney mantra “document, document, document.” The reasons should be obvious: Documentation can be compelling evidence of what occurred during the employment relationship and can support nondiscriminatory reasons for employer actions. However, having poor documentation–documentation that is ambiguous or biased or that lacks specificity–is worse than having no documentation. This session will highlight the 10 most common documentation mistakes, reveal how your documentation will be viewed by a jury or judge, and provide tools for creating documentation that will assist you in court.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar the participant should be able to:

  1. Understand the top 10 employee performance documentation mistakes and how to avoid them.
  2. Utilize tips and tools for creating proper employee performance documentation.
  3. Discuss how a jury or judge views employee performance documentation.
