Human Resources is infamous for repeating three words, “document, document, document.” There is no doubt documentation is crucial. However, what you document and how you document is critical if faced with a legal challenge. When challenged with a lawsuit, what the employer documented, and how it was documented will be either your defense – or that which helps the other side to win.
The purpose of employers keeping documentary records is to show they comply with applicable laws. However, records often as not, do just the opposite. Because any documentation is certainly not necessarily quality documentation. Instead, employment documentation can often be in reference to or appear, as a fact that serves as proof an employer did not follow the law. Such supposedly defensible documentation instead appears (or shows) that the employer acted improperly in any of a myriad of situations.
This webinar will cover in detail how to produce high quality documentation and what not to do in terms of documentary practices in regards to timing, content and purpose. This webinar will include examples of documentation both quality and not. Just as importantly, this webinar will also cover how to persuade your managers to view documentation as just as important for them, as it is to the company.
