HR is always preparing for litigation. You MUST know what to say … and how to document it

Document, document, document! That HR mantra has been drummed into your head for one main reason: employment lawsuits are usually decided based on the quality of the organization’s documentation or lack of it.

From substandard work to insubordination to absenteeism, correctly discussing and documenting discipline is critical for both legal protection and successful employee communication. Most managers or HR professionals, however, never learned how to write up an employee. Now you can.

On August 19, discover how to document and discuss employee discipline issues in the most clear, accurate and legally smart way. Learn exactly what to say during verbal, written and final warnings, how to write up incident reports, how to draft tangible improvement goals and how to document last-chance consequences.

Your trainer, Paul Falcone, is a best-selling author and the former HR leader at Paramount Pictures and Time Warner. Paul’s webinar and accompanying handout will provide you with sample phrases and wording that you can start using right away!
