This webinar explores retaliation in the workplace and steps employers can take to avoid claims of unlawful retaliation. With increasing frequency, employers are facing claims of retaliation. It's illegal for employers to retaliate against employees. Retaliation can take many forms: opposing an illegal employment practice, testifying, assisting, or participating in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing. The bottom line for retaliation cases: Employers don't want to deal with them: they're expense, annoying, unpredictable and unnecessary.
