Time:9am-12pm
Location:EANJ Training Room
Sponsored by:EANJ

THIS PROGRAM WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 7TH.  DUE TO IMPENDING INCLEMENT WEATHER, WE HAVE MOVED THE SESSION TO MARCH 20TH.

The management of the grievance process from the initial management decision through to the arbitration can play an integral part in a successful outcome for an employer. Having a proactive strategy enables the employer to position the case in the most favorable light, evaluate the case early on, provide leverage in achieving advantageous settlements and avoid last minute surprises if the case ultimately ends up in arbitration.

This program will focus on a step-by-step practical approach to handling grievances, including policy contractual interpretations and discharge issues.  This three hour program will:

•    Help key individuals understand opportunities for managing the process;
•    Provide helpful strategies to enable an employer to evaluate cases early on; and
•    Assist employers to positively position themselves in the grievance process before the matter is referred to arbitration

Participants are encouraged to bring a current grievance or issue, as well as a copy of their company’s current Grievance Policy or Collective Bargaining Agreement for group discussion.

Who Should Attend: HR Professionals, Labor Relations Staff, Supervisors & Managers involved in the grievance/arbitration process.

Speakers:
Marvin M. Goldstein, Special Legal Advisor to EANJ. Marvin is a retired Partner in the Labor & Employment Law Department of Proskauer Rose, LLP.
