United States of America

Few managers enjoy dealing with employees who misbehave. Sometimes their misconduct is so serious and blatant that the course of action is clear. More often, there is a lot of gray area where the extent and nature of the misconduct is unclear, and the procedures for documenting misconduct and taking corrective actions are insufficient. They may also be difficult to defend.

Dinsmore attorneys Sadhna True and Drew Millar will provide you with efficient [and legal] strategies to investigate and address employee misconduct — leading to more workplace harmony — and reducing your risk of potential law suits.

You'll learn more about:

  • When an investigation of alleged misconduct is necessary 
  • How to undertake an investigation and document the results 
  • How to design an effective disciplinary policy that provides flexibility, consistency and provides employees with adequate notice 
  • How to implement the disciplinary policy 
  • How to document properly to support disciplinary action and/or termination 
  • How to justify disciplinary action or termination if the employee challenges you

Seating is limited. Please respond by February 8 to reserve your space. 
Applications for HRCI credit, SHRM credit and Kentucky CLE credit have been approved.
