Registration includes 120-day unlimited, online access to the recorded program.

What You’ll Learn

Understanding in-depth the rationale for provisions relating to termination, bonuses, commissions, stock options, continuance of benefits, non-solicitation and non-competition clauses (failure to understand which can lead to costly litigation)

Strategic approaches to the framing and drafting of workplace policies and procedures and employment contracts

Effectively planning and managing performance and performance improvement plans

What the law requires, and what represents proactive best practices, in strategies for accommodation

Overcoming the challenges posed by workplace harassment and mental health issues in the workplace

Termination: managing and limiting the risks

Understanding the formal mediation and litigation processes which come into play if informal resolution does not succeed

A key element of this program is the in-depth case-study method which will run continuously throughout the successive modules, enhanced by ‘fireside chats’ and input from distinguished HR VPs and senior directors.

Who Should Attend
