Even if you win an employment-related lawsuit, you lose! The cost to defend your department – not just in legal fees but in management time, officer morale and public relations – can be significant. A better approach is to avoid lawsuits altogether.
Poor employee relations skills can have long term negative consequences. It negatively impacts departmental budgets, police services and officer morale and accounts for 60% of turnover. As a leader in your PD, you are in a unique position to help your department avoid these problems.
This fast-paced, highly interactive and entertaining program provides situation-specific advice for handling the major employment-related interactions that leaders in law enforcement experience on the job. You'll learn:
- Effective and ethical employee relations tactics and practices that minimize department and personal liability.
- Scripted responses to use in sensitive situations and prevent past events from being used to support future legal claims.
- How to avoid anyone saying to you “You should have anticipated this” after an avoidable legal claim.
