Seminars


Jody Katz Pritikin brings her entertaining style as a seminar leader to the challenging issues facing corporations today.  Her seminars are intensely unique and participatory.  Each program is tailored for the client and industry.  All attendees have the opportunity to learn Proactive Lawsuit Prevention strategies while playing games in teams.  Prizes are awarded to the winning participants.   As always, these programs are designed and tailored for each client, available for onsite delivery, can be combined, and are customizable for length.

Unlawful Harassment Prevention (aka AB1825 Plus)
Jody Katz Pritikin, Esq. brings her unique style and energy to the very difficult topic of Unlawful Harassment Prevention.  Not at all a “typical” lecture - this program will teach your managers and executives unlawful harassment law.  This program goes beyond the minimum requirements for California’s recently enacted AB1825.  AB1825 requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide at least two hours of "classroom or other effective interactive training" to all supervisory employees on the prevention of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation.
In this program attendees will learn:

 

  • What is unlawful harassment
  • What is sexual harassment
  • What are managers and executives rights and responsibilities in the workplace
  • What are managers, executives and company liabilities in the workplace
  • How to prevent unlawful harassment in the workplace
  • What to say and do when faced with an uncomfortable/ unlawful situation
  • What procedures to follow when an employee complains or manager sees it
  • How to stop unlawful harassment before it even starts

Lawsuit Prevention Strategies for Managers
Managers and executives will gain a unique insight into Lawsuit Prevention.  In this program attendees will learn what common missteps management makes that often create litigation.  These mistakes are easily identified and avoided before they are made. 

This program covers how to avoid lawsuits that occur when managers:

 

  • Fail to Document Discipline
  • Fail to Adequately Train
  • Fail to Keep Evidence
  • Inflate Evaluations
  • Forget to Consult Human Resources
  • Use Email Inappropriately
  • Treat Employees Inconsistently

  • What is a “Manager?”
  • Managing People
  • Making things Happen
  • Skills for Communicating
  • Manager Challenges
  • Manager Tools

  • Delegating Effectively
  • Coaching For Improved Performance
  • Conflict Resolution

Social NOTworking
This program demonstrates how a company can embrace all the benefits of social media use within the workplace while simultaneously showing human resources how to protect the company from social media abusers within.   Attendees will learn:

  • The Good News and Bad News about Social Media Use in the Workplace
  • The Components of an Iron Clad Social Media Policy
  • Special issues for Recruiters, Bloggers and PR
  • Special Concerns Surrounding Selective Enforcement
  • The Critical Importance of Training (and what to train) Employees on Social Media Use


Lawsuit Proof Investigations

This program is designed for in-house HR professionals who conduct in-house investigations.  It can also be tailored for in-house counsel, employment law experts, and neutral investigators.  A more in-depth version can be designed for newbie HR staff who have never conducted investigations. An Investigator's Kit can be ordered, tailored to your company and policies, upon request.

This program will teach investigators how a plaintiff's attorney might attack their investigation. The common attacks are:

  • The Neutrality Attack
  • The Time Attack
  • The Fair and Thorough
  • The Retaliation Attack
  • The Taint Free Attack
  • The Burden to Remedy Attack


Other seminar topics include:

  • Diversity Awareness
  • How to Investigate Complaints
  • Legal Issues in the Hiring Process
  • Disciplining Poor Performers and Misconduct
  • Delegating & Coaching
  • Motivating and Rewarding
  • Conflict Resolution & Management Challenges
