Webinar Details

We know that the stigma and health information sharing related to COVID-19 is just starting to generate massive claims and lawsuits as related to discrimination and retaliation. Lawsuits related to COVID-19 are expected to snowball exponentially as the courts and government agencies return to operation. So, how can employers start to prepare now for the deluge of claims anticipated in the near future? By preparing documentation just as a lawyer would. It is all too easy to forget to document reasons for furlough or disciplinary issues while in the midst of a pandemic, but those omissions will come back to haunt employers once the lawsuits are filed. What employers interpret as "for the good of the organization" is going to fly directly in the face of employees who feel they were singled out, were "accused" of COVID-19, were placed on FMLA or the Families First Act, or were ousted from employment.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Employers need to be prepared to defend themselves against these claims. The best way to defend yourself is not just simple as “documenting," but documenting like a lawyer to maximize efficiency, efficacy, and success.  This program will teach you how to analyze situations quickly, how to document events the right way, how to draft documents like a lawyer, and how to avoid the pitfalls that most employers fall into that cause them to lose. By learning four easy methods, you will improve every communication you make and every document you create. These four techniques, the POWERPOINT method, the FUNNEL method, the NATO’S DC method and the CIRAS method will enable you to become a better speaker, a more adept investigator, a more efficient and effective note taker, and an excellent and persuasive writer.
