Winning a sexual harassment, discrimination or wrongful termination case requires much more than an employee claiming they were mistreated. No matter how outrageous the story might appear, these cases can be lost by technicalities or by an improperly prepared plaintiff’s deposition testimony. This course will cover the basics, requirements and most common pitfalls of prosecuting employment cases. We will provide an overview of most of the types of claims available to employees, the pre-litigation filing and notice prerequisites for discrimination related claims, and the notice prerequisites for certain wage and hour claims. We will discuss some of the ethical issues that often arise in the context of representing multiple employees and with contacting witnesses. We will discuss strategies to overcome common defenses, defeating dismissal motions and dealing with arbitration agreements. We will provide strategies for dispute resolution, discovery, and trial.
