Meagher & Geer partner, Debra Weiss, is a panelist at the October 8, 2014, HRP Monthly Program titled Until Verdict Do We Part! Creating and Fostering Strategic Partnerships Between HR Leaders and Legal Practitioners. The panel of Human Resource and Legal executives to address these issues and many more like them. This panel consists of internal and external legal consultants as well as HR practitioners who deal with these risks every day.
This event is intended for Human Resources leaders, as well as Legal practitioners, who are involved in employment litigation — from prevention, to managing, litigating, and/or settling disputes between employees (or former employees) and the companies involved. Human Resource leaders confront potential legal disputes nearly every day in their organizations. The risks are ever increasing … from employment discrimination to wage and hour disputes, workplace harassment, bullying, social media breaches, health and safety violations, theft, violations of company policies … the list is endless. From a compliance perspective, developing effective workplace policies and procedures, dealing with labor and employment laws such as the Affordable Care Act, Affirmative Action, NLRB, FMLA, ADA, FLSA, Workers’ Compensation and other regulations, these potential risks create a potential tornado of disputes, lawsuits, and litigation.
