Do your managers know what behavior can lead to workplace liability? Do they know the best ways to handle workplace conflict?
Prevent conflict from escalating. Workplace conflict - and ultimately, liability - can arise from many directions. Employees feel frustrated because of inaccurate performance reviews, perceived unfair treatment, harassment, discrimination, “hostile work environment” situations, ADA / FMLA violations, claims of defamation and invasion of privacy, claims of broken promises that lead to breach of contract…to name a few. All these claims require investigation, and the appropriate response.
AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS THE KEY!
Train your managers so you can prevent workplace liability
- Create a positive work environment
- Give supervisors the skills to investigate and respond to complaints
- Resolve conflicts at the lowest level
