Pre-Conference Workshops:
Employment Law for Municipal Managers – Be on the Right Side of the Story,  2:00-4:00 pm @ $0
Whether your municipality is large or small, union or non-union, one thing holds true over time – people do silly things.  Learn how proper documentation techniques in hiring, performance evaluations, discipline and discharge can be effective risk management for your organization.  Proper documentation (from hire to fire) is how an employer tells its story and ensures it is on stable ground in the event of a lawsuit. This session will also touch on case studies and issue spotting with the Family Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, employee policy manuals and the Michigan Paid Medical Leave Act.
