    Presentation TitleSpy Tactics for Human Resource Professionals – Assessing Employee Truthfulness

    Summary of Presentation:  Human Resources professionals frequently assess truthfulness in the workplace.  Making accurate and timely credibility determinations is an essential skill, but how can you be sure someone is being truthful?  The task can be daunting.  However, there are techniques that can make the job easier; proven tips and tricks borrowed from another profession – the professional intelligence officer.  Throughout history, countries have relied on intelligence officers to develop spy networks to seek out the truth.  While there are ethical, legal, and practical considerations that prevent you from using your own spy networks in the workplace, there is no reason why you cannot borrow, and learn from, some of the other tools that spy handlers around the world have used to assess truthfulness for decades.  This presentation does just that – outlining tips and tactics that can help you determine whether someone is lying or telling the truth in the employment context and beyond.

    Brief Speaker Bio:  Attorneys Anderson and Kurlinski represent employers in litigation of labor and employment-related disputes in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies, as well as in the arbitral forum.  Experienced in both single plaintiff matters and class actions, their practices include defending claims of:  employment discrimination; unlawful harassment; retaliation/whistleblowing; wrongful discharge/violation of public policy; breach of contract; interference with prospective economic/business advantage; unfair business practices; wage and hour violations; fraud; defamation; and privacy violations.  Aside from litigation, they also assist employers of all sizes with customizing and implementing state-of-the-art employment policies and procedures.
