February Legal Update & Luncheon
10:15 am - 11:15 am
Speaker: Terri Swain
Topic: The 7 Deadly Sins of Retaliation
Retaliation is the #1 filed charge with the EEOC and the #1 category for “cause” findings. So often the original allegations held no merit, yet the retaliation case is strong. While it is human nature to want to “get rid” of the complaining employee, it’s a huge risk area for employers. This session will define retaliation, give information about mitigating claims and provide some common sense advice for your squeaky wheel employee (yes! we all have them). We will specifically be speaking about EEOC retaliation, but these same theories can be applied to other types of retaliation statutes.
Terri is the founder and managing partner of The HR Consultant, a Fort Worth based, human resources consulting firm specializing in Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and employee relations. The company was founded in 1998 and has a nationwide diverse client base.
