About The Event
Employers have always avoided the termination either because it is not easy to terminate someone or because it can be difficult to defend any allegations of wrongful termination. Cases of wrongful termination have emerged and increased since the late 2000 year. Research has identified the following factors in this increase:
- Employees more aware and knowledgeable of the workplace rights
- Employees taking chances in making “a killing” by charging discrimination
- Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) establishing increased awareness on how employees can make these charges
- New whistleblower protections for employees who turn in Employers
- More resources on websites by Department of Labor (DOL) providing employees with ways to confirm if Employers are violating current regulations
Because of these and other factors, Employers are now more than ever, at risk of litigation against termination decisions. The EEOC has established definitions and guidelines of what constitutes discrimination and what employees are part of “protected classes” and discrimination claims. Now that there have been additional protections under EEOC, Employers should consider these regulations and prepare for those potential Risks.
Employers need to be aware of the cost of these actions via litigation, fines & penalties and even criminal sanctions. Employers need to ask if they have the protections they need when they make decisions on termination, reduction in force, demotion, suspensions and disciplinary actions.
