Webinar to Address Importance of Employment Documentation
SPRINGFIELD — Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C. invites business owners, managers, and human-resource professionals to an informative webinar outlining ways employers can build the documentation they need to back up terminating an employee for poor performance and avoid costly lawsuits.
The webinar will be held Thursday, May 25 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and hosted by attorney Susan Fentin of Skoler, Abbott & Presser, in conjunction with BLR.
“It’s essential that employers create written employment documentation for performance, conduct, and disciplinary issues in a way that’s objective and, most importantly, legally defensible,” Fentin said.
During the webinar, she will explain how to master the toughest aspects of employment documentation; address performance and conduct-based issues with actionable language that focuses on the behavior, not the person; include the right amount of detail in describing the employee’s actions; follow up with the employee to evaluate whether necessary progress has been made; and plan the next steps if the employment issue isn’t improving, and how to document decisions.
