What can you do when your best employee is also your worst? Healthcare has received much attention for the past two years, but we rarely hear about labor and employment issues. Join us as we discuss physician discipline, and several other topics. We’ll also explore the best practices for handling problematic, public facing, income generating employees; how to address discrimination in an environment of all essential-workers, and workplace safety guidelines in the age of COVID-19 and increasing workplace violence.
Attendees will have the opportunity to further discuss thoughts, questions and reactions in small breakout sessions.
