10:00am to 11:30am
Overview : This webinar will cover in detail how to produce high quality documentation. This webinar will also teach you what not to do in terms of documentary practices including in regards to timing, content and purpose. This webinar will include examples of documentation both good and poor.
This webinar will also cover how to persuade your managers to view documentation as important for them as it is to the company.
Why should you attend: What an employer does document, what it does not document and the manner of use of the documentation are critical elements in determining whether their records show compliance with the law(s) - or not. Management techniques just don’t always have an answer for the modern challenges managers and HR face. So documentation can be the only factor that shows an employer in good faith tried to live up to their obligations to their employees and be a fair, non-discriminatory employer.
So everyone; trainer, advisor, user and reviewer of records need to be trained in the best practices (and worst) practices so they know how to document, when, what, how, and why to document, and just as importantly, how to not document. Because wherever there are people, there are employee relations issues which can turn into compliance issues.
