    RESET THE CLOCK:  Replace Liability with Credibility

    Comprehensive and Practical Employee Relations for Management

    Even if you win an employment-related lawsuit, you lose!  The cost and loss to your company – not just in legal fees but in management time, employee morale and public relations – can be significant. A better approach is to avoid lawsuits altogether.
    Poor employee relations skills can have long term negative consequences to both financial performance and business effectiveness.  It negatively impacts organizational performance and employee morale and accounts for 60% of turnover. 
    As a management professional, you are in a unique position to help your organization avoid these problems.This fast-paced, highly interactive and practical program provides situation-specific advice for handling the major employment-related interactions that you experience
    on the job. You'll learn:
    • How to educate and support your team through effective and ethical employee relations practices that minimize corporate and personal liability.
    • Scripted responses to use in sensitive situations and prevent past events from being used to support future legal claims.
    • How to avoid anyone saying to you "We should have anticipated this" after an avoidable legal claim. 


    Litigation-free management is a by-product of positive employee relations. In this one-day dynamic program specifically designed for Management, an extensive array of employee relations scenarios will be covered, including:
