Difficult conversations with employees are unavoidable, and owners of small businesses often find themselves handling situations typically administered by a traditional human resources department. Having these conversations requires a certain level of compassion and skill, as well as understanding and navigating legal pitfalls that might arise. Our experienced panelists will provide guidance on how to prepare and navigate such conversations, as well as properly giving and receiving feedback, dealing with employee negativity/barriers, and using communication to motivate.

In addition to her dispute-resolution practice, Lindsay helps employers develop workplace policies and procedures to effectively comply with state and federal employment law, and to limit exposure to employment claims and related litigation.
