Join us for an interactive session to address several different HR scenarios, using actual examples involving background checks, terminations, employee complaints and accommodating mental illness in the workplace.  We will explore together various options for dealing with the challenges that arise in these scenarios, including best practices and legal pitfalls.  You will have an opportunity to submit scenarios and questions in advance, as well. If time permits, we will address them, as well.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identifying legal issues that can arise with hiring and firing.
