Terminations and discipline expose employers, and their managers and supervisors, to potential liability under a myriad of employment and labor statutes. Terminations and discipline imparted by management can be attacked as discriminatory, retaliatory or otherwise illegal under a host of federal and state statutory and common laws. Join Louis DiLorenzo, a partner in Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC, as he discusses ways to impose discipline so as to minimize the risk of such claims and enhance the ability of your client organization and its agents to defend against claims that cannot be avoided. Topics include:

  • The importance of discipline and the benefits of progressive discipline.
  • The Seven Steps organizations and their supervisors should review before imposing discipline.
  • DiLorenzo's two corollaries to the Seven Steps (dealing with avoiding accommodation and retaliation issues).
  • The different disciplinary tools available to management, including action plans and last chance agreements, and the advantages they offer. 
  • The potential liability that may exist for a failure to discipline.
  • The importance of documentation, including termination notices and letters, investigative materials, and performance evaluations.
