Event Description:

How to Manage the Sick Employee
Employers struggle with employees who often are late or absent. Excessive tardiness and absenteeism can be a drain on a company financially as well as due to the impact on employee morale. Outright termination may not be the solution due to the intersection of the many laws at play in this area. Through the use of practical, real life scenarios, our panel will lead the way through the pitfalls of this complex area.

Discipline, Discharge and Documentation
Employers often do not manage their employees out of concern for legal repercussions. This panel will discuss ways to deal with employee misconduct and poor performance without running afoul of the law. There will be ample opportunity for audience questions and participation in the discussion.

Pitfalls Involved in Compensating Employees
This can be one of the most expensive areas where employers can go astray. Improperly classifying employees as independent contractors or as exempt for the wage and hour laws can cost employers double back pay and get them in trouble with the IRS. These and other wage and hour pitfalls are the subject of this panel.
