What they can do right to keep from getting sued. And why sometimes employers get sued even when they doing everything "right." This should be a lively, engaging, and entertaining debate!
We will discuss:
- What do HR professionals do wrong that get employers sued?
- What do HR professionals do right to prevent employers from being sued?
- Why do employers gets sued even when they've done everything "right"?
