HR Circle Breakfast Meeting Winter 2003
John Zandy, chairman of our Labor and Employment practice group, will discuss:
Responding to a Discrimination Complaint: Practical Advice and Strategies for Handling a CCHRO Claim.
Being served with a discrimination complaint by a disgruntled employee is almost inevitable in today’s environment. Responding appropriately to this first stage of litigation is essential to building the best defense. Speaking from years of experience in handling such matters, John will provide advice for formulating an effective response. He will walk us through the process from the service of the complaint through hearing, explaining in practical terms the issues HR professionals will confront along the way.
Topics will include:
- responding to the complaint,
- preparing a strategy,
- handling the fact finding,
- when to engage in settlement discussions
- and ultimately, what happens if the matter goes to public hearing.
