Only One Week Until KZA's Next Management Workshop - Sign Up Now!

Volume 16, Issue 14
July 25, 2017

Due to an overwhelming positive response to our upcoming, August 3, 2017 Management Workshop on Employee Conduct - Investigations and Discipline, we secured a larger room and have additional seats available. If you want to attend, but have not yet registered, now is your chance to do so!

Join KZA Partners, Edwin Keller and Jen Sarafina, for an advanced level presentation on internal workplace investigations and employee discipline. Eddie and Jen will explore solutions to many of the obstacles human resources and legal professionals confront during the course of workplace investigations and the employee discipline process, including:

  • Supervisor misconduct and the "cat's paw" theory of liability;
  • Utilizing third-party investigators;
  • Use of confidentiality instructions;
  • Knowing when to give a Johnnie's Poultry warning and how to address employee's Weingarten rights;
  • Responding to employees who have "lawyered-up;"
  • Interviewing complainants and witnesses no longer employed by the company;
  • Issues of privacy, social media, and recordings;
  • Considering comparator evidence when selecting appropriate discipline;
  • Preventing claims of inconsistent discipline and reestablishing the baseline used to evaluate disciplinary action; and
  • Handling discipline issued by a "new-sheriff-in-town" manager.

The Workshop will be held at the Springs Preserve from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 3, 2017. It is complimentary for all current KZA clients and available to non-clients for a nominal, prepaid registration fee of $25.00. Refreshments will be provided.
