Our November program will be “Troublemakers & Malcontents: Dealing with Difficult Employees and Minimizing Exposure” presented by Greg Hair of Ogletree Deakins. Mr. Hair will discuss ever-increasing employment litigation, identifying “troublemakers” in your organization, tips for managing the constant complainers and ways to take action. 

Gregory J.Hare has been an employment lawyer at Ogletree Deakins since 1991. He assists companies with human resources and employment-related litigation matters, including wrongful termination claims, sexual harassment, employment discrimination, employment contracts, trade secrets, and non-compete agreements. He advises clients on a wide range of human resources topics, such as employee discipline and discharge, severance planning, independent contractor classifications, wage payment, family and medical leave, disability law, military leave, joint employment issues, affirmative action and reductions in force. Mr. Hare also counsels clients on traditional labor relations matters involving union avoidance, decertification, strike contingency planning, double-breasting, grievance administration and arbitration, collective bargaining, unfair labor practice litigation, and other matters involving the National Labor Relations Board, including "protected concerted activity" cases.

Mr. Hare encourages companies to develop proactive human resources strategies that are designed to minimize exposure to costly litigation and disputes.  This commonly includes conducting comprehensive employment law compliance audits, employment policy design and review, management training and counseling, and simulated problem solving workshops.
