Webinar Replay: Verbal Abuse Unemployment Hearing
Do you know how to prepare for a verbal abuse unemployment hearing?
Preparation is key if you hope to protect your organization from an unjustified charge in an unemployment hearing. At our recent Mock Verbal Abuse Unemployment Hearing webinar, we provided the unique insight and best practices you need to prepare correctly.
To help uncover these tips, our team of seasoned UC hearing representatives re-enacted this real hearing involving verbal harassment in the workplace. This highly engaging case took multiple turns throughout the hearing and included a last minute assertion of discrimination. So surprising was this addition, that we wanted to see how the over 1,000 HR pros in our audience would guess the outcome after reviewing all the facts of the case.
Our live poll underlines just how hard it can be to understand how the testimony presented will affect a hearing. In fact, our results showed that about a third of attendees thought that the hearing officer would rule for the claimant. And about a half thought she would rule for the employer.
