Session V: Employment Litigation War Stories and How to Avoid Them
Many people ask about a lawyer’s trial experience. Trials are exciting and interesting, but a lawyer representing an employer should try to avoid trial.
In this session, Robert Weissflach, an experienced trial attorney, will tell interesting employment litigation “war stories,” which will lead into a discussion of what employers can do to avoid such protracted litigation.
Topics covered will include:
- Harassment investigations
- Documentation and record retention
- Attorney-client privilege issues
- Employee leaves
- Reasonable accommodation
