About the Program

The pandemic, the normalization of remote work, a multi-generational workforce and “the Great Resignation” has made this one of the most transformative times in the history of work.  Business as usual has been upended, and employers across the board are revisiting strategies for retaining top talent and managing under-performers. Join us for a panel discussion on the nuances of performance management, discipline, and separations while staying true to your corporate culture, mitigating legal risk and avoiding reputational harm. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Best practices for protecting trade secrets and issue-spotting restrictive covenants when on-boarding and off-boarding employees;
  • Performance management do’s and don’ts;
  • Strategies for counseling and disciplining employees; 
  • Appropriately managing terminations and reductions in force; and,
  • Securing the return of company data.
