Show Topic:
On the next HR Power Hour, workplaces are comprised of a variety of people with a diverse array of personalities and skills.

While the spectrum of personalities can be vast, most employees conduct themselves in a professional manner, they understand the expectations that their position holds, and they respect authority, their fellow employees, and the company.

But what happens when an employee’s attitude and actions change? As a leader, do you and your teammates have the tools and resources to manage difficult employees with the goal of finding a solution that allows all parties to overcome the issues at hand and move towards a positive and productive work environment.

At the same time, are your team members aware of the legal pitfalls that could await if there is a misstep?

For answers to these questions and a lively discussion about managing difficult employees, join co-host Tawny Alvarez as she talks to Labor and Employment Attorney Doug Currier about managing the practical and legal risks that difficult employees can bring to the workplace.

About The Guest:

Douglas P. Currier is a Partner at Verrill. Since he began practicing law more than 30 years ago with Verrill, Doug has earned high regard in the region for his litigation skills and proactive counsel to management on employment issues such as discrimination suits and traditional labor law issues like collective bargaining agreements, union grievances, and elections.

As a member of the Verrill’s Employment & Labor Group, Doug represents companies in diverse industries such as health care, higher education, manufacturing, professional services, banking and finance, and agriculture. In the employment arena, Doug works with clients to develop workplace strategies that achieve objectives and navigate an intelligent path through complex personnel issues while maintaining compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), and other relevant laws.

He advises on issues ranging from drug testing, whistleblowers, and workplace investigations to compensation and exit strategies, succession planning, and class actions. Doug is also litigation counsel for businesses facing legal challenges arising from traditional labor issues such as union campaigns, labor arbitrations, wrongful discharge, OSHA citations, and discrimination claims.
