Discrimination Claims And How To Avoid Them

Federal laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace go all the way back to the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  In the 45 years since the Civil Rights Act was passed, new anti-discrimination laws have been passed and case law has defined and refined the breadth and depth of the many anti-discrimination obligations imposed on employers.  Facing a dizzying list of protected classes and newspaper headlines that shout out a painful reminder of the costs of ending up on the losing end of a discrimination claim, employers are wise to learn more about discrimination laws and ways to avoid discrimination claims.

This program provides an overview of the laws against discrimination as well as a more detailed review of the most common discrimination claims.  In addition, this seminar provides practical suggestions regarding how to avoid the danger zones that can lead to discrimination claims.

Topics Include:

  • The truth about at-will employment;
  • Types of discrimination claims;
  • The most common discrimination claims;
  • Danger zones that can lead to discrimination claims; and
  • Limiting liability.
