Effective and Legal Discipline of High-Risk Employees

Oakland Convention Center

Human Resources professionals know the importance of being fair and equitable in administering discipline, but there are certain employees who make that task more difficult. This may be an employee who recently took protected medical leave but has failed to perform effectively since returning, or an employee who routinely violates policies but goes out on stress leave when approached by a supervisor about the misconduct. Some employers do not address the problem to avoid even the appearance of retaliation, but this usually exacerbates the situation. Other employers are not aware of the risks presented by these employees and proceed with discipline that does not take into account the varied ancillary considerations.

At the annual HR West Conference in Oakland on March 6, Gina Roccanova, Chair of Meyers Nave’s Labor and Employment Practice Group will present a session that utilizes real-life scenarios to examine the complex factors that come into play when disciplining an employee who may have engaged in unrelated protected activity.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to identify potential roadblocks to discipline
  • How to mitigate the risk of retaliation claims
  • What information and resources are necessary for effective discipline in high-risk situations
  • How to effectively document conduct of high-risk employees
