Most employers and Human Resources professionals know that keeping regular documentation in the workplace is critical to the employer's protection. More important than just keeping documentation, however, is keeping the right documentation. The words used (or not used) in every employee communication can significantly help or hurt the employer's position.

In this informative webinar, employment law attorney Karen Gabler will provide a detailed review of what to say (and not to say!) in some of the most common employer-employee communications. Topics will include the following:

  • What do I say to revoke an employment offer?
  • What do I say when an employee says he is ill or injured?
  • What do I say when I've heard through the grapevine that an employee might be disabled?
  • What do I say when an employee with a protected characteristic needs to be disciplined?
  • What do I say when I want to terminate an employee who is on leave?
  • What do I say when I've heard reports that the employee is talking to a lawyer?
  • What do I say when an employee won't accept constructive criticism?
  • What do I say when an employee is out of paid time off but continues to be absent?
  • What do I say when an employee needs extended time off?
  • What do I say when an employee complains of harassment or bullying?
  • What do I say when an employee has been given a warning and immediately claims harassment?
  • What do I say when I'm terminating an employee?
  • What do I say when the employee is disciplined and then makes a complaint?
  • What do I say in a PIP memo? What do I say at the end of it?
  • What do I say when an employee is gossiping?
  • and more!
