Legally Happy: How to Legally Inspire a Happy Workforce
(WEDNESDAY, June 14th)

Keely Jac Collins
Attorney, King, Spry, Herman, Freund and Faul LLC

According to recent case law from federal courts around the country, a hostile work environment is created from the top down: Where employees lack a sense of purpose and recognition at work, the atmosphere is ripe for workplace bullying, resulting in sympathetic plaintiffs and, ultimately, costly settlements and jury verdicts. The prevailing scientific theories of happiness compel an understanding that a workplace atmosphere of gratitude, where employees find meaningful work, as opposed to simply a paycheck, is essential to maintaining a workplace that is free from hostility. However, in order for a workforce to be "legally happy" employers must also truthfully and accurately record performance issues in order to avoid claims of unlawful discrimination and retaliation. The outcome of the presentation would be for attendees to be inspired and have the tools to create a "legally happy" workplace, by balancing the aspiration of a happy workforce with the legal realities.
