When it comes to legal compliance and risk avoidance, it is critical to train ownership, Human Resources, managers and employees. Knowing the fundamentals and how to issue spot areas of risk allows an employer to take proactive steps to ensure compliance and minimize personnel disputes. In addition to carrying potential legal risks, personnel disputes can negatively impact an employer’s day-to-day operations and bottom line by leading to poor morale, lowered employee attendance and higher insurance claim costs, employee retention problems, lowered productivity, quality problems, and bad publicity that, in this day and age, sometimes goes viral.
