Ventura, CA, August 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- HR managers and business owners will gain valuable insight into the attorney perspective of avoiding lawsuits filed by disgruntled or ex-employees when Meghan B. Clark, Esq., a partner in the Employment Law Group of Ferguson Case Orr Paterson LLP, presents “How to Make Employees Unattractive (To a Plaintiff’s Lawyer).” The luncheon seminar is hosted by the East Ventura County Employer Advisory Council and will be 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., Sept. 21 at Los Robles Greens Golf Course, 299 S. Moorpark Road, Thousand Oaks.
“I often see companies that are not prepared and put their business at risk because of decisions made in the process of disciplining or terminating employees,” said Clark. “This seminar will help human resource professionals and business owners learn the critical procedures they should follow to ensure they are protected from unnecessary employee lawsuits and – if there is a suit – how to minimize the company’s exposure.”
Detailed how-to information on a number of related topics will also be covered, such as running a workplace investigation, minimizing wage and hour claims, obtaining an enforceable release of claims from terminated or laid off employees and working with insurance carriers when a claim is threatened or made.
