You have heard it before – document, document, document. If you do it right, it is your best defence against a lawsuit. If you do it wrong, it is your worst enemy. If you destroy documentation too early, you could be doomed in court. So how do you document properly to avoid costly lawsuits?
Why Should You Attend
As a labour and employment law attorney, you are always reviewing documentation that supports your client’s version of what happened. As a human resource professional, you look at documentation so that you can approve a termination recommended by the supervisor. But as a supervisor, your focus is usually more on getting production done, and you “forget” to document that you had to tell a subordinate three times to do a task. You put off doing those performance appraisals. What are they used for anyway? And, as a supervisor, you are often documenting misconduct or performance issues of someone you once worked side by side. Is documentation easy? No. Is it critical? Yes. But how do you do it right?
