Key Take Away:

This employment documentation webinar will cover in detail how to produce high quality documentation and teach you what not to do in terms of good documentary practices including in regards to timing, content and purpose.

Document, Document, Document! If ever there was a HR slogan, that it would be. However, be careful what you ask for.

There’s no doubt documentation is crucial. Employers keep documentary records to show they are in compliance with applicable laws. However, records often as not, do just the opposite. Because any documentation is not necessarily good documentation. Instead, documentation can often be in reference to or appear, as a fact that serves as proof an employer did not follow the law. Such defensible documentation appears (or shows) that the employer acted improperly in any of a myriad of situations. As we, all know perception is reality to most viewers, including readers of records.

Why Should You Attend:
HR is the advisor and trainer of documentation. Yet they cannot manage every employee in an organization. Employee’s managers are the persons who take (or not) HR’s advice and training and then choose to document properly (or not.)

Forcing managers to document rarely results in good quality documentation but instead often produces incomplete, illogical, and inconsistent documentation. Incomplete, illogical, and inconsistent documentation gives adversary excellent tools to use against an employer.

Areas Covered In This Webinar:
What an employer does document, what it does not document and the manner of use of the documentation are critical elements in determining whether their records show compliance with the law(s) – or not.

Management techniques just don’t always have an answer for the modern challenges managers and HR face. Therefore, documentation might be the only factor that shows an employer in good faith tried to live up to their obligations to their employees and be a fair, non-discriminatory employer.

So everyone; trainer, advisor, user and reviewer of records needs to be trained in the best practices (and worst) practices so they know how to document, when, what, how, and why to document, and just as importantly, how to not document.

Because wherever there are people, there are employee relations issues which can turn into compliance issues.

This webinar will include examples of documentation both good and poor. This webinar will also cover how to persuade your managers to view documentation as important for them as it is to the company.
