Your Number is UP!!!

Part 2 in a three part series by Gail Birks, President/CEO, CMA Enterprise Incorporated

July 23, 2021

So... You have been notified that an EEO (Discrimination) Complaint has been filed against you personally and your company. And you are caught unprepared. Now you need to start gathering people, information that will assist you in defending yourself. As you create your checklist, consider the following...

  • Law Team specializing in Employment Law

  • Personnel Policies and Procedures

  • Personnel files

  • Memorandums/Letters

  • Employee lists to be interviewed

If you have embraced the right philosophy and preparation in building your infrastructure and cultural foundation to minimize this type of encounter, then this experience should not be painful, but you should be able to get through it expeditiously.

Policies and business practices to consider for the assurance of "preventive medicine" should include...

  • Compliance measures are endorsed by the highest levels of your organization

  • Have a robust policy and best practice for equitable business processes and philosophies

  • Schedule compliance training to educate your workforce at all levels

  • Easy to access guidelines dealing with harassment and hostile work environments.

  • Educate managers and supervisors on heightened awareness in recognizing the risk factors that can lead to a complaint(s).

If you don't have some of these items in your "preventive medicine" library of oversight, then you need to put them in place. The question is not "if" but "WHEN" it happens will we be ready to respond quickly and accurately?"
