Finding the perfect fit is important.  Each time an employer hires an individual, there is a cost – in time and money – to train and retrain.  Having to do so multiple times puts needless strain on already fragile manpower and budgets.  This webinar will help employers get it right the first time by teaching companies how to effectively hire the right person and minimize the threat of litigation.  The following areas will be discussed:
 
  • The Pre-Interview – Preparation is the key (Draft up-to-date job descriptions, ADA compliance)
  • The Advertisement – Set Expectations (Denote the appropriate skills, EEO compliance)
  • The Interview – Consistency (How to interview/Ask compliant questions)
  • The Offer (Background checks, Drug testing, Non-compete agreements)
  • On-Boarding (Orientation, Training, Union Avoidance Strategies or Union Contract Issues, Tips and Strategies to make a Good “First Impression”)
 
This webinar will give human resource professionals, managers, and business owners the tools to decrease turnover and obtain a qualified candidate without opening the company to added exposure.  If you want to decrease the cost of the hire and onboarding related litigation, this is the webinar for you!

Without an effective workforce it is impossible to function, support, and advance the goals and mission of the organization. Our employees are our most valuable resources. As such, developing the tools and skills necessary to coach, confront and discipline is integral to achieving high levels of performance and correcting behavior. This workshop will help managers, executive directors and supervisors learn to:
  • Approach an employee about a problem behavior or deficient performance… in a way that minimizes accusations and defensiveness and gets results
  • Draft written discipline documents and learn why consistency is important and how documentation should best be created  
  • Draft performance improvement plans while discussing what they are and why they are important
  • Investigate complaints and respond effectively
  • Discipline, reassign, or dismiss the person if the problem doesn't improve … and handle it all fairly while mitigating and minimizing the potential for litigation

This webinar will offer clarity to many of the points which interlock between FMLA, ADA, and Workers’ Compensation, as well as various state specific leave laws.
