Employers face many legal risks in managing the employment relationship--but never so much as when it comes time to end it.

Join DSV’s employment lawyers as they demystify the risks associated with employee termination and provide strategies and best practices to minimize litigation following employee termination. We will discuss everything from emergency terminations for violent actions in the workplace to terminations for employees' inability or unwillingness to meet behavioral or performance expectations, along with some sound advice for reducing risk through separation agreements.

Drinks and appetizers will be served.

Audience: Employers, Company Owners, HR Professionals
