How To Win Harassment, Discrimination & Punitive Damage, Claims Without An HR Expert, NELA 2016 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Having an HR expert testify as to the standard of care is a well-established method for proving a claim that the employer failed to take reasonable steps to prevent, correct, and remedy harassment or discrimination—and showing the employer’s lack of care may provide the basis for punitive damages. Not every case warrants the expense, however, and in others, a judge might erroneously exclude the expert. Our speakers discuss how to win these claims without an HR expert. They provide you with a detailed outline of each of the elements required to meet the existing standard of care relating to (1) creating, communicating, and implementing anti-harassment/discrimination policies; (2) training employees and supervisors; (3) developing and implementing effective complaint procedures; (4) conducting proper investigations; and (5) taking appropriate remedial actions. The outline can be used as a template for the deposition of the employer's HR personnel, as the basis for special jury instructions, and/or as a checklist for your HR expert. A mock cross-examination of the employer’s HR personnel through the use of the outline will be presented.
