Adams and Reese Partner Scott Hetrick will lead a panel discussion at the EEOC for HR & Front Line Supervisors Workshop, to be held Wednesday, September 17, 2014, at the Lake Forest Yacht and Country Club in Daphne, Alabama.
The workshop will discuss how EEOC guidelines and applications are necessary in ensuring a discrimination-free work environment that keeps you on the right side of compliance.
The workshop speaker will be Eddie Abdulhaqq, who is well known to the Daphne area and has been a tremendous asset in helping to educate businesses and employees on the EEOC’s mission and practical resources for ensuring compliance with EEO laws. This workshop is approved for HRCI recertification credits.
At Adams and Reese, Hetrick is a management rights advocate who focuses on federal and state labor and employment law compliance and disputes arising from claims in this arena. He counsels employers in all aspects of labor and employment law to help avoid claims arising from day-to-day employment decisions, particularly terminations of employees and large-scale layoffs.
Hetrick also assists in the drafting and revising of employment policies and procedures, employment applications, background check disclosure and consent agreements, employee handbooks and employment contracts, including non-compete agreements, trade secret agreements and arbitration agreements.
Since 1994, he has defended hundreds of “charges of discrimination” filed against employers with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He has litigated numerous discrimination and retaliation lawsuits in federal and state courts, of which most were resolved by summary judgment and dismissal of all claims against the employer.
Hetrick speaks frequently on employment law and human resource management issues at seminars for personnel managers and business owners and has published several articles on employment law topics.
