From the nightly news to office water cooler banter, organizations everywhere are presented with stark reminders that workplace crises involving human resources are the new norm. Be it the threat of whistle-blower activity, proliferation of an infectious disease or, in the most tragic of circumstances, an active shooter, strong HR crisis response protocols have become a critical component of good business practices.

Please join Fisher Phillips partner David Lichtenberg for an engaging discussion about the threats organizations face and steps that should be taken to mitigate risk to personnel and negative business impact when facing an HR crisis. The dangers of being unprepared are too significant to continue assuming your company is immune, but a well-defined and proactive crisis management/response plan can leave you well positioned in the event of an emergency.
