Documentation Requirements for Legal Decision Making

Many employers do not have proper records.

Without accurate records many employment lawsuits turn into he said/she said situations. Moreover, in any employment lawsuit companies without good records are usually exposed to more liability. During this topic we will go over some of the most important steps that you can take to reduce possible liability by creating good records. You will thoroughly review how to document hiring decisions to avoid potential discrimination claims and what other applicant records must be kept, and how to maintain employee discipline and leave records in a way that will allow employers to avoid costly legal problems later on. Finally, you will review how to create an employee improvement plan and what they must include in their employee handbooks. Using some simple methods, all employers can improve their documentation practices, increase the value and productivity of employees, and reduce potential liability.
