Stay out of court
Our programs are for employers who want their leaders to demonstrate good judgment, such that employment-related lawsuits are avoided, rather than won.
Even winning lawsuits results in negative outcomes: Attorney’s fees, lost work time, employee morale diminishes, and bad publicity.
If the goal is preventing lawsuits, compliance programs are well-intended but short-sighted.
Focusing on ” what to do” rather than “what not to do” is much more effective in handling employee relations issues with good judgment. Leaders who base their decisions on Attendance- Performance- Conduct stay out of court.
What we offer
“Reset the Clock,” is a unique process built into our programs. It prevents an attorney from taking something leaders did wrong or did not do in the past and using it in future legal challenges. Both employer and personal liability clocks are reset.
Staying out of court is a by-product of good employee relations skills. For all the descriptions and characteristics of leaders, two matter the most: Effective and ineffective. Our programs result in leaders becoming highly effective in handling employee relations issues with good judgment.
The most repeated feedback received is that leaders wished the program had been brought in-house much sooner.
Good faith prevents liability
A “good faith effort” includes effective policies, leadership training and active enforcement. Most leaders want to treat their employees fairly. Most employees want to perform their duties diligently. Nevertheless, there are plenty of opportunities to run into potential liability situations. In these situations, leaders who know what to do, how and why, have a significant advantage over those who don’t, in avoiding lawsuits.
There is liability for failure to act, failure to make a decision. Sometimes the breakdown is due to a lack of knowledge or a lack of confidence.
Leaders gain significantly increased wisdom and confidence in addressing employee relations issues, through this program such that they stay out of court.
Replace Liability with Credibility:
This highly interactive program provides leaders with a wealth of practical information that is necessary to minimize outside attorney intervention and court review of their business decisions, avoid bad publicity and public embarrassment, and protect their employer and personal assets.
Your policies are fully reviewed and edited to reflect current standards of excellence, and then referenced throughout each presentation. This fast-paced and entertaining program is presented in plain language, without “legal-ese.” Each fully customized presentation provides leaders with the specific employee relations tools and tactics necessary to demonstrate good judgement when handling a wide array of significant situations. Questions from your leaders on their issues and concerns are highly encouraged and answered directly.
It’s more effective to keep employers out of legal trouble than to get them out. The cost savings are about 20-to-1. One employer, upon achieving a reduction in legal fees of over 75%, credited this program as “the biggest contribution to this huge cost reduction.” Your investment in this powerful program is minimal when compared to the cost of a single lawsuit.
Attendees gain increased practical knowledge and confidence in handling employee relations issues.
Employer and personal liability is replaced with credibility.
A harmonious working environment is fostered.
