     That we are a nation of "victims" is nowhere more evident than in our workforce, where the dramatic growth of alleged employment discrimination and wrongful discharge claims over the past eight years continues to rise. The numbers alone are staggering. Suffice it to say that since the Civil Rights Act of 1991 allowed jury trials, punitive damages and other remedies, there has been an almost geometrical increase of such lawsuits in our federal and state courts, and an even greater number of charges before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and state human rights boards.

     The simple fact remains that a company can institute policies and procedures that fully comply with the law, enforce them in a consistent manner, properly document the entire process of counseling or disciplining a difficult employee, not utter a word that could even be construed as unlawful discrimination, yet still face a lawsuit that it will have to defend. Our system is such that we cannot keep someone from suing or filing an administrative charge - however, employers can take certain steps that help create non-litigious working environments and which will also give them their best chance of prevailing if ever challenged in court. This course will review current federal employment laws and how employers can avoid employment-related lawsuits.
