Managing Liability. Employment Discrimination: A Risk Management Strategy.
McMullan, Sandra H.
This booklet discusses the risks that educational institutions face in regard to employment discrimination litigation and outlines a program to effectively manage such risks. Institutions need to address three main types of employment discrimination issues: sexual harassment, disability-based discrimination, and age discrimination. To deal with these concerns, educational institutions should implement a five-step employment liability management program to help minimize the potential liabilities resulting from employment discrimination claims. Institutions need to: (1) identify the most pressing employment discrimination liability concerns; (2) conduct an employment liability audit; (3) evaluate employment policies and procedures, revising them if necessary to minimize exposure; (4) provide training to those who supervise others or make employment decisions; and (5) utilize alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to resolve employment-related complaints. Examples of recent court cases are provided, as well as a list of suggested training materials (MDM)
