Human Resource Management Annual Conference and Exposition in Chicago


Details

Appalachian School of Law Professor and Director of Special Programs Kendall D. Isaac will be speaking at the 2013 Society for Human Resource Management Annual Conference and Exposition June 17th from 02:00 PM - 03:15 PM at McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago.


With an impressive keynote lineup, hundreds of sessions, the world's largest HR marketplace, and the iconic Chicago skyline as a backdrop, the SHRM 2013 Annual Conference & Exposition will give you everything you need to be more focused, energized and successful. Make your plans now to join us and ensure that you are faster, stronger, and bolder.
By attending Professor Isaac's "Using Alternative Dispute Resolution as a Remedy for Workplace Bullying," You will learn how to deal with bullying claims by infusing proper alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques into your work environment.


Workplace bullying is on the rise. While federal and state laws protect individuals from harassment and discrimination based upon age, race, sex, religious preference, disability, and national origin, the law is fairly silent relative to direct protection against workplace bullying. Without clear legal protections, what can be done about bullying? How can ADR mechanisms help remedy a problem that seems to have expanded beyond the control of the traditional HR department? You will learn practical ways you can develop processes to better address these bullying and harassment claims as well as dispute resolution best practices you can implement in your organization.
