Breakfast Briefing: Penny Wise, Pound Foolish–Proper HR Preparation & Preservation in a Litigious Era

Attorneys Robert W. Burns, Mary S. Gerbig and Anthony J. Steffek of Davis & Kuelthau’s Labor & Employment and Litigation Teams reviewed practical measures to be better prepared should employment litigation be in your business future. In the increasingly litigious times in which we live, even those employers who generally follow “best practices” in the human resources area are likely to find themselves defending a claim or lawsuit from a former employee or unsuccessful applicant.

Topics included:

  • Due diligence protocols for adverse employment decisions
  • Electronic discovery issues (subpoenas for e-mails, texts, metadata, etc.)
  • Importance of litigation “holds”
  • Documentation concerns: Is there an “original”?
  • Defined decision making
  • Non-compete agreement pitfalls
  • Separation/severance agreements – do’s and don’ts for effective releases and claim waivers
