In this session we will reverse engineer the process. We will look at problems that arise in the courtroom when defence attorneys do not have the proper documents to defend the company, and what goes right when they do have the proper documents. Through this process we will learn what needs to be kept and should to best defend and protect the company in the event of an employee lawsuits for FLSA overtime, Title VII (discrimination) FMLA and ADA.
We all know that it is important to document events that occur. There is the old expression, “if it is not in the chart it did not occur.” But in some settings not documenting is crucial and fatal. For example, did you know that not keeping track of employee’s hours is fatal to overtime cases. Sometimes you might be documenting items, but focusing on the wrong items. In this seminar we will discuss what needs to be documented and what should be documented that strengthens employers’ defenses in the event lawsuits are filed.
