Employment Law Seminar – Setting Employees Up To Succeed…and (Safely) Breaking Up With Those Who Don’t

By Hoge Fenton | 04.26.2017 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

Date April 26th, 2017 April 27th, 2017 Time 7:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. 7:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Location Hoge Fenton San Jose Office 60 S. Market St 2nd Floor San Jose, CA 95113 Four Points Sheraton 5115 Hopyard Rd. Pleasanton, CA 94588 Setting Employees Up To Succeed…and (Safely) Breaking Up With Those Who Don’t If you manage people, you know how hard it can be. People are complicated. They also happen to be the most crucial and indispensable asset you have as a company. The right employees will elevate a company to new heights. The wrong employees can drain a company’s energy and resources, and cause the right employees to leave. As such, effective performance management is key, and equally important is knowing when and how to show non-performing and problematic employees the door…without getting sued! There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but there are several best practices for promoting employee engagement and ensuring consistency, fairness, and legal compliance in the workplace. Join Hoge Fenton’s Employment Law team while we demonstrate these best practices–as well as some very bad, but common practices–through “performance art” and interactive discussion.   Who Should Attend Business owners and managers, CEOs, CFOs, COOs, in-house legal counsel, human resource professionals, trusted advisors, and others responsible for personnel matters.   Sarju A.
