A human resources professional is the bridge between management and employees, and between the company and outside legal counsel. A human resources professional must be a "jack of all trades" -- intelligent, strategic, confident, discreet, knowledgeable, and supportive of management as well as staff. Protecting the company is paramount, but careful budgeting of legal expenses is critical in these challenging economic times. How can human resources personnel protect the company, please management, support employees, and use legal counsel wisely, all at once?

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the role of the human resources professional in companies of all sizes and industries, and how to effectively balance a myriad of interests involved in human resource strategy, analysis and planning. Topics discussed will include:

  • The executive's biggest complaint about HR
  • The employee's biggest complaint about HR
  • The best resources to use to stay abreast of changing legal standards
  • Presenting an HR initiative to executive management (or, "why won't they listen to me?")
  • The most critical element to include in any suggestion to management
  • Rolling out HR issues for staff (or, "don't shoot the messenger!")
  • Handling an employee complaint
  • Protecting yourself when your advice falls on deaf ears
  • When to call your employment attorney and how to use legal services wisely
  • What to prepare before you call your employment attorney so you can proceed most efficiently
  • The top things that HR personnel can do to cut the attorney's time in half
  • What to look for in employment counsel to best serve the company
