Retaliation is Real and Can Be Really Stupid

Hey Compliance Warriors!


We are doing a Boss Call on February 9th, 2022 to discuss what your managers and supervisors need to know.

I want you all to read this article by Eric B. Meyer with FisherBroyles, LLP.

In this article, Eric explains some terrible email exchanges that ended up in court and will very likely end up costing the employer (and possibly some managers and supervisors) major dollars.


Is this the worst batch of retaliatory emails I’ve ever read? Maybe.

Print this post if you want to discourage your managers and supervisor from putting dumb sh*t in emails that might one day get shown to a jury and end up costing your business a mint.

Boss Call: February 9th, 2022

Training Your Managers and Supervisors:
What Do They Need to Know?

Wednesday, February 9th, 2022 1 – 2:30 pm CST
Do you know that your managers and supervisors need more information in order to comply with laws like FMLA, ADA, Anti-Harassment, and more?
Have you been wondering what information they MUST HAVE as opposed to dishing it all up and causing information overload?
If so, join me for a 90-minute breakdown of what your leaders must know about the various employment laws under which they may have personal liability AND ALSO put your company at risk if they are operating without sufficient knowledge.

Send me your specific questions and I will be sure we address them during this information-packed Boss Call!

Hope to see you on the Call!
