Webinar On Untangling the FMLA and ADA Overlap Puzzle to Avoid Employment Litigation

  April 15, 2015  

Compliance Trainings, Canada

Description :

To protect your organization, it is crucial to have an effective strategy in place from the moment you hear a complaint, concern, or when misconduct occurs. Investigating complaints, misconduct, etc. is the right thing to do to protect your company from expensive litigation. It also shows good faith efforts to ensure your decision to terminate or to not terminate was based on a thorough review of pertinent information.

When an informal or formal complaint is made, the employer should take immediate steps to stop the alleged conflict, protect those individuals involved and begin investigations. Under many laws (Title VII, ADA, ADEA, OSHA, Sarbanes-Oxley, state and local nondiscrimination laws, etc.) employers are legally obligated to investigate complaints (harassment, discrimination, retaliation, safety and ethical) in a timely manner. In addition, any appropriate corrective action is required to be taken by the employer to ensure illegal actions/behaviors cease immediately.

Workplace litigation is at record high levels. The average lawsuit settlement is $165,000 and if the case goes to a jury, the cost can soar to over $1,000,000. Failing to appropriately investigate and document complaints is one of the top reasons businesses lose money in litigation and settlement awards

This webinar will assist in ensuring employers investigate complaints and issues appropriately to protect their assets as well as avoid spend valuable time dealing with unnecessary litigation.

Invited Speakers:

Vanessa G. Nelson, MSA, SPHR, CLRL is founder and President of award-winning Expert Human Resources, which she founded to help companies maintain employment law compliance, avoid workplace litigation, reduce costs, and increase revenue.

Vanessa established Expert Human Resources in 2009, after observing companies' frustrations with complying with constantly changing employment laws as well as continually dealing with workplace litigations and fines. Vanessa realized that a lot of the litigious situations that businesses encountered could be avoided by their being proactive and implementing updated polices and applying them correctly. Vanessa also recognized that many companies could not afford a full-time HR person, or department, to assist in maintaining compliance with employment laws, as well as applying policies and practices correctly; therefore she established a "portable HR" to accommodate those businesses.

Vanessa is a results-oriented HR Consultant with a unique background in business management, spanning over 29 years at two major medical centers in Michigan. Her expertise includes: HR audits, labor relations, employment laws, employee relations, workplace investigations, and policies and procedures. Additionally, Ms. Nelson has worked with companies to implement processes to improve conflict management and employee relations and conducted harassment training to improve company efficiencies. She has helped companies save hundreds of thousands of dollars.


Ms. Nelson received her Master of Science in Administration/Human Resources Management from Central Michigan University, and a Bachelor in Business Management from Northwood University. She holds the Certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) credential from Human Resources Certification Institute, Certified Labor Relations Leader (CLRL) from Michigan State University, and is Six Sigma White Belt certified.
