Sterling Risk Advisors, an Atlanta-based risk management and insurance brokerage firm, and law firm Hall Booth Smith, P.C. hosted a breakfast seminar on “Employer Rights and Avoiding Liability” on June 27 at the Capital City Club Brookhaven.

The seminar was an introductory discussion on employment law and how employers can avoid, resolve and prevail in employee disputes. Hall Booth Smith partners Don Benson, Rich Sheinis & Kevin Abernethy presented.

Topics included:

• At-will employment and contracts of employment

• Hiring

• Discipline and termination

• Investigating discrimination claims

• Avoiding retaliation and whistleblower claims

“Proactive management of employee disputes is crucial to avoiding employer liability,” said John Miller, Sterling Risk Advisors. “A company should have clear policies in place and train their employees to understand that comments, jokes and even gestures can be evidence in an employment case. Our insureds welcomed the education that was provided by the team at Hall Booth Smith.”
