I Never Should Have Hired Him in the First Place!  Navigating Common Employment Issues and Not Getting Sued

Presented by:  Melisa C. Zwilling

During this webinar, attorney Melisa C. Zwilling will discuss some of the legal issues employers are facing as a result of an incredibly tight job market.  Oftentimes employees are hired as a result of employer desperation instead of employee qualification.  Though it may seem like a good idea, it can present numerous challenges and lawsuits, many of which will be considered during this webinar.  Should an employer overlook lack of qualification for a position?  What should be done with unproductive employees?  How should an employer treat an employee who doesn’t show up for work on time on a consistent basis?  What should be done about drama-loving employees?  How can employers handle employees looking for a way to not work?  These and many other issues will be covered during this one-hour webinar presentation.
