Course Description:

Annually hundreds of thousands of lawsuits and hearings occur across the country. Each of these is "legal" proceeding which require evidence of events that actually occurred. Documentation is what wins, or in some cases loses, these lawsuits and hearings. The result of lack of documentation results in the loss of millions of dollars each year that might be prevented by a good documentation program.

Why should you Attend?

Documenting employee discussions is a very tricky and at times painful activity for organizations. While it is crucial for HR for a number of reasons, it is a difficult habit for the other employees to imbibe. Documenting employee discussions is important from a legal perspective, because this makes the case strong and defensible. Documentation is both the bane and the blessing for HR. It is difficult to get people to do it, but it is preferred by attorneys and believed by judges and juries.
