Learn how to use documentation to get the best performance out of your employees and to properly defend your decision making process.


You have heard it before – document, document, document. If you do it right, it is your best defence against a lawsuit. If you do it wrong, it is your worst enemy. If you destroy documentation too early, you could be doomed in court. So how do you document properly to conform to HR legal compliance?

Why Should You Attend

As a labour and employment law attorney, you are always reviewing documentation that supports your client’s version of what happened. As a human resource training professional, you look at employment documentation so that you can approve a termination recommended by the supervisor. But as a supervisor, your focus is usually more on getting production done, and you “forget” to document that you had to tell a subordinate three times to do a task. You put off doing those performance appraisals. What are they used for anyway? And, as a supervisor, you are often documenting misconduct or performance issues of someone you once worked side by side.  
Is documentation easy? No. Is it critical? Yes. But how do you do it right?
