U.S. Webinar: Retaliation Claims: Understanding and Addressing the Risk to Employers
Event Date: 04/25/2013 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time

Did you know that retaliation claims comprised the largest category of claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in 2012? Whistleblower claims–a slightly different version of the retaliation claim–are increasing rapidly due to new, pro-employee laws that often reverse past legal precedent. And employment lawyers overwhelmingly concur that retaliation clams are the most difficult employment claims to defend. Currently more than 20 federal laws protect employees who report suspected unlawful activity to the appropriate authorities–and the unlawful activity only need be based on a ‘reasonable’ belief of unlawfulness on the employee’s part.
While it’s unreasonable to suggest that any kind of workplace claim can be completely prevented, there are a variety of measures employers can adopt to help mitigate the risks.
Please join HR Options and Scott Wenner, Partner at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis, for a complimentary webinar on Thursday, April 25, 2013, 10am PST. The webinar will address the following items:
  • The differences between retaliation claims and whistleblower claims.
  • Defining unlawful retaliation and what that means to employers.
  • Understanding what it takes to prove a retaliation claim, and issues that arise during this process.
  • Steps you can take to develop an integrated process for reporting and handling complaints of discrimination and mistreatment.
  • How to protect your company against retaliation claims.
We look forward to seeing you online.
Mr. Wenner chairs Schnader's Labor and Employment Practices group and the International practice group. In his practice he represents employers in a broad range of domestic and cross-border employment and privacy law matters.
