In today’s environment of dynamic organizational change and uncertain economic conditions, no organization is immune from allegations of misconduct, sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, policy violations and other employee disputes. Yet most organizations lack compliant processes and appropriate governance when dealing with adverse employee events. Join us for an interactive expert panel discussion to find out what you absolutely need to do differently to mitigate the growing risks associated with adverse employee events specifically within health care systems.
Learn investigation mistakes that plaintiffs’ attorneys are watching for, discuss the importance of having effective processes in place, understand the real costs associated with mismanagement, and acquire strategies for establishing a repeatable, defensive investigation process. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and pose scenarios to a healthcare human resource leader, an outside counsel specializing in employment law, a plaintiff attorney, and an investigation specialist. Their cumulative experience and expertise will engage the audience, perhaps provoke some debate, and provide attendees with strategies and processes to help mitigate the organizational risks inherent with these types of claims.
It is only a matter of time before allegations of misconduct, discrimination or other wrongdoing will be made at any organization. HOW the organization, its leadership and the human resource team address these allegations can be the difference between:
- Fair and appropriate remediation…or a front-page headline.
- Preserving your organization’s reputation…or eroding the value of your brand.
- A summary judgment for your organization…or a huge damage award to the employee.
- Swift and thorough investigation…or scrutiny by regulators, plaintiff’s counsel and the public.
