Steve Sheinberg, General Counsel and Senior VP, Privacy and Security at the Anti-Defamation League, will address the complex subject of employee discipline and dismissal. Steve will give us valuable guidance on using the progressive discipline process: from counseling to verbal, to written warnings. When it is time for termination, how can we make sure to treat employees consistently and with dignity, while minimizing legal exposure?
Some of the questions Steve will answer include:
- What should an effective write-up contain?
- When is it time to terminate?
- What exactly does a “probationary period” mean?
- When should we use a severance agreement?
