From Religion to Romance, Bullying to FMLA Abuse: Avoiding and Handling Thorny Employee Issues

Come away with practical tips to avoid costly and complex employee issues.

Would you know how to respond if one employee feels bullied by another's religious beliefs and actions? Or what to do if you found pictures of an employee snow-skiing - who was out on leave for a medical condition? Or, how to respond when two of your employees start dating and break up? This topic is designed to help you navigate common and growing issues arising in the workplace. Focused on providing practical tips to avoid problems and prevent their escalation, the topics will include policies and tips to address dating in the workplace; preventing and responding to workplace bullying and other potential sources of harassment or violence; handling religious accommodations to avoid liability and maintain productivity; and handling issues that frequently arise when employees take leave under the FMLA or ADA.
