Gregory Keating, Member of the Firm, co-presents “Retaliation: The Rising Centerpiece of Civil Rights Enforcement,” for DirectEmployers (DE).
In this roundtable masterclass discussing the continued surge in retaliation claims across the country, Greg and others join Candee Chambers, Executive Director of DirectEmployers, to help employers understand what is currently and rapidly unfolding as to this high-dollar topic.
Greg’s practice has focused on retaliation for decades as he was the first employment defense lawyer to realize the rising threat of the retaliation cause of action. Greg is, as a result, the country’s leading legal expert on the retaliation cause of action and will bring his keen insight and decades of experience with retaliation claims to bear to show employers where the pitfalls are and how plaintiffs’ lawyers are exploiting weaknesses in everyday common HR practices. Greg and others also offer practical tips as to how companies may take steps to avoid being leveraged by unhappy employees and their counsel.
The Roundtable discusses what a retaliation claim looks like these days, the expanding concept of “adverse action,” third party retaliation, retaliatory harassment, and practical best practices to help avoid common pitfalls and/or minimize liability, especially now.
