Avoiding Discrimination In Employment Terminations
The decision to terminate an employee is never easy. With state and federal agencies adopting more expansive views of their authority, employers face greater scrutiny in the workplace. Employers, therefore, need to proactively protect themselves from legal claims that can arise from the decision to terminate an employee. This presentation will provide an overview of the most important laws for Wisconsin employers and practical advice about avoiding and defending employment discrimination claims related to those decisions.
