Accountants and HR pros are involved in many areas where the organization can be exposed to legal liability.  Yes, every phase of the employee journey can result in the employee claiming discrimination or retaliation. In addition, remember that workers are well-educated consumers. A poor performer may launch a pre-emptive strike over the supervisor’s conduct—typically using terms like harassment, discrimination, and retaliation—before the supervisor has a chance to complain about her performance. The strategy is to complain about the supervisor so that any discipline or termination looks like retaliation. The workplace wisdom in this session belongs front-and-center in your management arsenal.
