Neither employer rights nor employee rights are absolute.  Effectiveness in employee relations requires HR professionals to coach leaders in how to balance these two sets of rights appropriately and respond to employee complaints with good judgment.

This program is uniquely effective in preventing lawsuits in part because it’s focused on showing leaders “What to do” rather than “What not to do.” Staying out of court is a by-product of good employee relations skills. The program’s material will enable HR Professionals to coach leaders to be effective in handling employee relations interactions with good judgment. Unique to this program is “Reset the Clock,” a process that prevents an attorney from taking something leaders did wrong or did not do in the past and using it to challenge the decisions they make in the future.

Michael J. Mirarchi is recognized as a leading expert in employment-related lawsuit prevention. As an Employee Relations Counselor, he is dedicated to helping employers stay litigation-free. Drawing from over 30 years of experience in employment and labor law, as an employer defense attorney and as a Human Resources Vice President, he developed a unique litigation-avoidance program. Through it, participants acquire significantly increased practical knowledge and a higher level of confidence in addressing employee relations issues than they have ever had before. He has presented his “Reset the Clock” program over 1,200 times to more than 28,000 leaders at employer facilities across North America. Mr. Mirarchi believes that the vast majority of leaders want to exercise their abilities with fairness, integrity and professionalism. Nevertheless, if you lead people long enough, there are plenty of opportunities to run into potential liability situations. In these situations, leaders who know what to do and how to do it have a tremendous advantage over those who don’t, in avoiding lawsuits. He has presented the HR Professional version of this program for SHRM Chapters across the country, annually for Dallas HR. In 2013, Mike was recognized as the first inductee into the HRSouthwest Conference Speaker Hall of Fame.
