Today's financial institutions must grapple with an endless variety of HR issues - from guarding against (and dealing with) discrimination and harassment to setting and enforcing policies on subjects as diverse as dress codes and Internet use. How do you navigate this tricky terrain without ending up in litigation? We can help.

This Webinar provides the guidance you need for dealing with problem employees without violating any laws. Legal Expert Gerard Panaro, whose down-to-earth delivery style is as engaging as it is informative, will spell out precisely what you need to know about investigation, documentation, deliberation. He will address various types of potential legal claims in discipline and discharge cases, proper hiring techniques and "insurance" against being sued. He'll be joined by BankersOnline Executive Editor Mary Beth Guard as moderator.

Some of the subjects to be addressed:
  • When to involve counsel;
  • What the simplest form of investigation consists of;
  • Other investigation strategies;
  • Techniques for documenting problems and claims;
  • Who should be involved in deliberations over action to be taken;
  • Protected categories and how they impact employment action;
