Boot Camp... Making Proper Employment Decisions and Handling Post Termination Issues

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Registration is open!

Man with MegaphoneThe federal and state courts, as well as administrative agencies, continue to make changes that impact how employers should handle employment issues and post-termination issues. In this interactive session, employers will obtain updated information about some of those key changes and what it means for public employers faced with employment-related complaints and possible litigation. This session will also examine what employers should do if they are served with an administrative charge or litigation complaint. 

You Will Learn:

  • How to address accommodation requests related to disability, pregnancy, and religious beliefs
  • How to address harassment and bullying complaints, particularly in light of the current #MeToo movement
  • How to address issues regarding transgender employees
  • What to do if an employee files an administrative charge or litigation complaint against their employer
  • How to effectively document performance problems and discipline

Meet the Speaker:
S. Leigh Jeter, the principal and founding partner of Jeter Law Firm, represents public and private sector employers in labor and employment matters. Ms. Jeter's litigation experience includes representing clients in state and federal courts across the nation involving a broad range of labor and employment laws, including Title VII, the ADA, the ADEA, the FMLA, and the NLRA, as well as a variety of other federal and state laws. Ms. Jeter has extensive experience investigating and handling matters filed with the EEOC, the IDHR, and related agencies. 

Over the course of her career, she has conducted numerous investigations into allegations of workplace misconduct, including those alleging discrimination, harassment, bullying, retaliation, failure to accommodate, performance or misconduct issues; wage and hour violations, embezzlement, fraud, assault and battery, collective bargaining agreement violations, and ethics and compliance violations. As part of her proactive approach to helping clients, Ms. Jeter regularly conducts training for employers and their employees on a wide range of employment matters.
