Discipline, Documentation & Termination Essentials

presented by Casandra Secord


Legally sound documentation provides a proper framework to assist managers and HR professionals to effectively address and document employee performance concerns. Terminations are much easier to defend when they are supported by legitimate business reasons and sound documentation. Join partner Casandra Secord with Atkinson, Andelson Loya, Ruud & Romo as she discusses successful documentation techniques that assist with discipline and provide the necessary back-up should the employee not improve.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to effectively prepare legally sound documentation for problematic conduct
  • Receive multiple strategies to change employee behavior through documentation
  • Build skills and receive tips to consider before ending the employment relationship

Casandra Secord, a partner with Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo, represents employers in single plaintiff and class action employment litigation involving allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, failure to accommodate, wrongful termination, wage and hour violations, and misappropriation of trade secrets. She regularly counsels employers regarding human resources and employee relations matters, including state and federal wage and hour laws, leaves of absence, reasonable accommodation, discrimination, harassment, discipline, termination, reduction-in-force, and employment and severance agreements.

Ms. Secord also creates employee manuals and develops written policies and procedures to assist employers in complying with state and federal employment laws. She has successfully defended employers in administrative charges before the Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in addition to wage and hour and retaliation claims filed with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement.
