Breakfast Seminar & CLE Program
8:30 – 10 am

The problems attendant to managing difficult employees can lead to legal liability for a corporation. This issue has particular application to corporations with diverse cultures and national origins. Further, difficulties with a single employee may be a clue that problems exist on a broader scale. This seminar addresses methods of managing difficult employees, with an emphasis on avoiding legal liability. In addition to practical advice on how to document, discipline and terminate difficult employees, participants will be provided with insights on non-confrontational alternatives to progressive discipline. The seminar discusses organizational concerns that may be signaled by these problems, and also explores ethical issues facing counsel advising on these matters.
