Navigating Choppy Waters: An Interactive Discussion on Effectively Handling Difficult HR Situations (Portland)

Bookmark and Share

Lawyers for Employers®

Oregon State Bar has approved this program for 1.75 general credits.

Employers, managers, human resources professionals and corporate counsel are invited to join us for an interactive breakfast discussion that will focus on how to effectively handle challenging human resource situations. We will address topics such as:

  • Should you proceed with disciplining an employee who reveals a disability?
  • What should you consider when disciplining employees who have just returned from leave?
  • Should you proceed with a termination when you have “less than ideal” documentation of prior performance issues?

Lane Powell attorneys Paul Ostroff, David Hosenpud, John Stevason, Sharon Bolesky and Jeffrey Knapp will discuss prototypical scenarios that occur in the workplace.
