Ever have a nightmare employee? You know, the one that makes you cringe before you even have your morning coffee? There are many types of migraine-inducing employees. Some typical traits are: regularly challenging managers’ authority, claiming every little thing they are unhappy with is a discriminatory act and that they have been targeted for retaliation.
Program highlights include:
- Best practices for managing challenging employees
- Discipline and termination while minimizing the threat of a lawsuit
