Avoiding employment law claims

27If you’re an employer or business owner you want to make sure you have lawful procedures in place to evaluate employee conduct and performance, and investigate claims of employee misconduct.  If you’re an at-will employer, you want to have clear at-will policies and disclaimers to avoid claims of implied employment contracts.  It’s also important for employers to know how to handle employee pregnancies and FMLA requests to avoid claims based on pregnancy discrimination or FMLA violations.

Further, it’s important for employers to have good workplace policies and rules concerning harassment in the workplace, employee viewing of sexually explicit or inappropriate content, employee confidentiality, and uniform policies concerning disciplinary procedures.
