Read more about their session below.

Drafting employment contracts and managing terminations of employment are two of the more challenging tasks HR routinely encounters. Though they involve the start and end of the employment relationship, both are interwoven such that steps taken at the outset of the employment relationship affect how the relationship will end. With care, parties can clarify expectations at the outset, minimizing strife and liability at the end.

This presentation will hone in on these critical phases of the employment relationship, ensuring that you leave with a strong grasp of:

  • Common oversights that affect the enforceability of employment contracts;
  • The difference in approach between offering written employment contracts to new versus existing employees;
  • Drafting critical terms to limit termination costs and liability;
  • Hazards and Pitfalls to avoid when ending the employment relationship;
  • Whether an investigation is required or not before ending employment;
  • How best to document the termination of employment, and whether you must provide reasons;
  • When, how, and why you may want to request a release of claims;
  • Tips for conducting the termination meeting and communicating an employees’ departure; and
  • Explaining Post-termination obligations.

Attendees will hear about the most recent case law in these areas, with the benefit of guidance from senior counsel.
