Why You Should Attend:
Many employers make the mistake of assuming that because they hired an employee “at-will”, terminating that employee will be a done deal—and they often end up defending a wrongful termination claim. Other employers may hold onto employees who are not performing well or who may even undermine company goals and safety, because they think that terminating them will automatically result in a multi-million dollar lawsuit.
Neither of those assumptions is necessarily true! So what can an employer do?
This webinar will help you gain some insight into how to navigate your relationship with your employees, keeping employment-at-will and its exceptions in mind.
Attend the webinar to know:
