This presentation will be an informative and entertaining presentation about determining credibility in the employment life cycle. Through a discussion of recent events and helpful examples, we will explore how employers can articulate their credibility determinations to prevent liability when making decisions, specifically in the world of employee relations. Join us as we discuss the tools necessary to avoid liability in hiring decisions, workplace investigations and termination decisions. Learn how to access the credibility of witnesses during internal investigations and what pitfalls to avoid. At the end of the day, the truth may not be discoverable, but the legal standards for basing your decisions are attainable.
