Please Sue Me

Good business decision-making usually means gathering information from various resources, assessing the risks versus the rewards, trusting instincts based on experience and then making the call-except in HR, where legal compliance relegates us to that ‘deer-in-the-headlights’ space. Good legal advice is important, but don’t let the attorney be the loudest voice in the room.



  • Don’t do stupid…analysis of actual EEOC court cases.
  • Who is protected?
  • Aren’t we an ‘at-will’ state?
  • Discrimination by the numbers
  • Termination checklist
  • FLSA…Exempt from what?
  • Wage & Hour risk assessment

HR Myths, Madness & Mayhem

Myth: Probationary periods make it easier to fire new employees!

Madness: Spending more time in an exit interview than you spent talking to that employee in the last year!

Mayhem: Thinking that a $50 gift card for ten years of service is motivational!

Just because we’ve always done it that way, doesn’t make it right.


Uncover HR policies and practices that can cause more problems than they solve in 2020. Terms like attitude, permanent, layoff and unauthorized overtime can add to your legal exposure. Cut through the myth and mayhem and get practical steps to harmony, productivity and staying out of court.



  • Discover why “probationary periods” can negate your “at-will” relationship.
  • Just putting someone on a salary does not eliminate the right to overtime pay.
  • Learn why a “use it or lose it” vacation policy is obsolete.
  • Update your “no dating policy” and stay out of the “baby-sitting” business.
  • Yes you can document and fire for “attitude”

What Not to Do

This session uses actual ‘hard to believe’ employment law cases and EEOC settlements to teach what NOT to do. Staying out of court is not so much about legal compliance as it is about better HR decision-making.



  • Illegal discrimination
  • Retaliation and Whistleblowing
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Equal Pay
  • Unconscious Bias
  • HR Freakonomics…by the Numbers
