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.

Learn from an experienced employment attorney who litigates in the trenches and regularly sees where these landmines tend to be.

Religious discrimination, in the context of employment, is treating employees differently because of their religion, religious beliefs or practices, and/or their request for accommodation —a change in a workplace rule or policy— for their religious beliefs and practices. After the EEOC update, many changes have to be incorporated and followed by businesses.

This webinar was great! In the beginning of my career in preparing taxes there was one client that had a nanny for her child, and I had to search for someone within the company to assist with the return. After watching this webinar I believe I'm capable of not only assisting the client with their household employee but advising them of whom to contact to get legal advice. Great webinar and very informative. Thank You!
