Using Suspensions to Handle Personnel Issues

Workshop Description/Agenda

Avoid lawsuits by making sure your suspension programs are up to date and in compliance. One of the most effective ways for employers to avoid employment lawsuits from their employees is to gather all relevant facts and take prompt corrective action. Employee suspensions are a means to such an end. If handled incorrectly, suspensions can be the basis for a future lawsuit.
