Additional program information:

"Unemployment Hearings - Preparation and Participation for Effective Employer Outcomes"

When an employee files an unemployment claim, the employer has certain responsibilities, deadlines, and opportunities in defending against the claim.  This program will educate Human Resource Professionals on how best to meet those responsibilities within those deadlines and take advantage of the opportunities offered in the process of handling these claims.  Some of the questions that will be answered include; Is it possible to avoid paying an Unemployment claim?  If a hearing is scheduled, what can I do to prepare?   When are witnesses a good idea at the hearing?  What if the DOL determination is unfavorable? This program will present practical and useful tips that will assist HR Professionals with the process of presenting information to the Department of Labor to defend against unemployment claims.
