Marriott at Metro Center 775 12th Street, NW Washington, DC 20005

However, there are various precautions an employer can take to not only minimize the number of suits that may be brought, but also to minimize its exposure to liability when such suits are brought. Ms. Salper will discuss proper documentation of disciplinary and termination decisions; steps for reviewing a proposed termination and how to best avoid termination disputes; discharge procedures — including exit interviews and final paperwork; and how to recognize a potential litigant.
