Working as an HR professional is difficult enough without having to worry about things like being held “personally liable” for your actions.

You could even be held personally liable for harassment or even for interference with FMLA!

Please join Melissa Fleischer for an in-depth overview of types of actions that could be brought against you personally. She will help provide you with best practices to avoid such liability.
