How to Prevent Employment Discrimination and Harassment Claims

  • Kathryn J. Russo, Esq., Jackson Lewis P.C., Melville, NY

This workshop will provide practical advice to employers on preventing discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace–in several different contexts. The presenter will discuss best practices with respect to lawful hiring, why written performance evaluations are critically important and how to write them so that they protect your organization from legal claims by employees, and how to handle internal complaints of discrimination and retaliation made by employees. Additionally, the speaker will address how to discipline employees; evaluate the appropriate severity of discipline, up to and including termination; and how to document disciplinary actions properly to avoid potential lawsuits from employees.
