Alameda, CA (PRWEB) May 5, 2008
The Employer Resource Institute (ERI) is presenting a one-day Intensive Class on terminations for California employers. The conference, "Terminations: Everything You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid To Ask," is being presented on three dates in three locations: San Francisco (June 5), San Diego (June 12), and San Jose (June 19).
Even experienced HR professionals find terminations a difficult yet unavoidable task. The need to keep track of a complicated set of legal concerns and documentation-- before, during, and even after the termination process--merely adds to the stress. Mistakes can mean expensive class-action lawsuits.
Last year in California alone, employers saw numerous expensive verdicts. A San Francisco jury awarded a security analyst fired from Sandia National Laboratories more than $4.7 million in damages, and an Oakland police officer who alleged constructive discharge received a $625,000 settlement - even though the city never admitted any wrongdoing.
Conference attendees will benefit from four in-depth sessions that cover all stages in the terminations process, and all types of terminations:
- Progressive Discipline, Warnings, and How To Know When It's Time To Say Goodbye
- Misconduct- and Performance-Based Terminations: Investigations, Documentation, and Avoiding Bias and Retaliation Claims
- Layoffs, RIFs, Releases, and Severance Packages: How to Effectively Protect Yourself
- The Termination Process: Exit Interviews, Termination Pay, and Post-Termination Steps to Keep You Out of Court
Matthew T. Humphrey, General Manager of ERI, says, "This conference is a great opportunity for employers to get all of their terminations questions answered in a single day, by a panel of very experienced California employment law attorneys."
The price of the conference is $379, but attendees who register before May 15 save $50. For more information, including a detailed schedule, speaker and location information, or to register, go to http://www.employeradvice.com/exit.
