    This presentation will cover what employees must prove in order to have a valid retaliation claim; the basic “Dos” and “Don’ts” regarding prevention of retaliation claims, including how and when to document performance issues and employment decisions; and a checklist for best practices in performance management, with claim prevention in mind.

    Our presenter will be Kyle Russell, Office Managing Principal for the Jackson Lewis law firm in Overland Park, KS.

    Mr. Russell represents employers in administrative charges and lawsuits involving a wide variety of statutory and common law discrimination and retaliation cases.  He also defends wage and hour collective and class actions involving alleged misclassification, off-the-clock work, failure to pay the proper overtime rate, and failure to pay wages when due. He also has extensive experience prosecuting violations of covenants not to compete by former employees. In addition to employment litigation, Mr. Russell has commercial litigation experience defending multi-district and state-law consumer class actions and governmental investigations.

    Mr. Russell also has experience training managers on a wide variety of employment law issues, including harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour issues, implicit bias, workplace violence, social media, background checks, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family & Medical Leave Act. He has also advised employers with respect to the implementation of nationwide arbitration agreement programs.

    In his spare time, he likes spending time with his wife and three children, walking his dog, watching way too much sports (Go Chiefs and Royals), and making and listening to music.

    Breaking Down Barriers Through Awareness:  Unconscious Bias

    2-hour

    We all have prejudices we are not even aware we have. Buried prejudice and biases are surprisingly influential underpinnings to all the decisions we make, affecting our feelings and consequently actions.  The phenomenon is called unconscious bias.  The concept of unconscious bias or “hidden bias” has come into the forefront because the dynamics of diversity are changing.

    Primarily, it is very important to understand biases in order to overcome them.  Your willingness to examine the filters through which you view and interpret yourselves and others is an important step in understanding the roots of stereotypes and prejudice in our society and in our workplaces. This program will help you understand and challenge unconscious bias. We will also discuss intervention strategies to mitigate unconscious bias.

    Objectives:

          Understand the purpose of bias.

          Define the term bias as it pertains to diversity.

          Raise awareness of the research behind unconscious bias.

          Understand the filters through which you view and interpret yourselves and others.

          Appreciate how unconscious bias can adversely affect judgment and decision making.

          Identify steps for controlling biases in your thinking.


    Prerequisite:  Complete Harvard’s online Implicit Bias test(s).
