Learn how to properly document events that occur during all stages of the employment relationship.

Most employers recognize the importance of documenting employee performance concerns during employment. However, proper documentation is essential at each stage of the employment relationship and implicates a myriad of other issues, including pre-employment and post-employment matters. This topic has been designed to provide human resources professionals and managers with a comprehensive overview of employment law issues and best practices with respect to how to properly document events that occur during all stages of the employment relationship, from the applicant's first interview to the days and weeks after their last day on the company payroll. The material will help you understand how to control the employment relationship through effective and thorough documentation, and you will learn practical tips for identifying what should be documented at each stage of the employment relationship and how to effectively prepare such documentation in order to minimize legal risk.
