Public Safety Employee Retaliation Claims
July 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm| $99.00
Public Safety employees appear to be suing their agencies more frequently alleging various forms of retaliation. These are resulting in 6 and 7 figure verdicts and settlements. There are many reasons for these types of lawsuits. Some result from retaliatory actions following a whistleblower’s coming forward with allegations. Others can result from the allegation that the retaliation was based on the employee’s gender, race, religion or other protected status. Some are a form of backlash resulting from the employee’s discipline in other matters. Underlying these types of allegations is the potential that we aren’t treating some employees fairly. This webinar will address:
- The current state of affairs around the country
- The basic elements of a retaliation lawsuit
- Essential aspects of investigating allegations of retaliation
- How Internal Affairs can become a catalyst for a retaliation lawsuit
- Supervisory actions that can stimulate this type of action
- Why developing a policy might safeguard your agency?
