Dealing with the problem employee is focus of Nemeth Law’s Raising the Bar series on May 18

Raising the Bar, an educational series raising employer awareness of current issues in employment and labor law and offered by Detroit-based management side labor and employment law firm Nemeth Law, P.C., returns May 18 with the focus on Dealing with the Problem Employee.

“Problem employees are relatively few in number but they consume disproportionate amounts of time, energy and resources,” Terry Bonnette, a partner at Nemeth Law, P.C., said.
“Statistically, these employees are most likely to create situations that will result in litigation.”

Using case studies to identify and illustrate strategies for dealing with problem employees, Nemeth Law attorneys will review the following topics:
• Seven common management mistakes that can result in litigation;
• High conflict individuals – strategies for de-escalation;
• Performance improvement plans – the good, the bad and the ugly;
• The difficult discussion – how to communicate negative information effectively;
• Bullying, harassment or discrimination – can you force employees to be civil in the workplace?

Raising the Bar will be held on Wednesday, May 18 at the Management Education Center, 811 West Square Lake Road, Troy, 48098. Continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m. The cost of the event is $75 per person and pre-registration is required. To register, e-mail Pamela Perkowski at pperkowski@nemethlawpc.com or call 313.567.5921.
