Whether you're already using severance agreements or just considering implementing separation releases, you don't want to miss this critical audio conference for employers and HR professionals.

Severance contracts can be an effective tool for deterring a departing employee from filing charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). But use caution when drafting such an agreement. Federal courts are ruling against separation releases containing confusing or restrictive provisions, especially those with broad covenants not to sue.

Find out how to use separation and settlement agreements to prevent litigation and learn when such agreements should be avoided by participating in the all-new HR Hero audio conference,Severance Agreements: Craft a Plan That Buys Peace, Not Litigation.

In just 90 minutes, you'll learn the differences between severance, settlement, and separation agreements, and how to use these contracts to shield your organization from legal danger.

You'll also learn:

  • Termination situations in which agreements are commonly used: potential age discrimination cases, RIFs, mass layoffs, etc.
  • How to avoid offering an agreement that might give an employee grounds for a lawsuit
  • Using an exit interview to gauge the need for agreements and potential agreement content
  • Hands-on tips for using agreements to prevent lawsuits
  • What HR should ask for in an agreement
  • What HR should keep out of agreements
  • If severance pay is involved, how much you should offer
  • Challenges and solutions when enforcing severance agreements
