Tips for Employers Making Employment Decisions

  1. Engage legal counsel early in the process.
  2. Review thoroughly the relevant facts and files prior to making the decision.
  3. Use our firm’s “independent” internal review process so that decisions are reviewed before being finalized.
  4. After discussion with counsel, prepare a note or memo to document the decision, the supporting evidence, and the legal basis at the time the decision is made.
  5. Spend time and effort writing a good position statement if responding to a charge.
  6. With the advice of counsel, assess the risks and identify the best strategy to defend or settle early on.
