I was a humorous motivational speaker for a bankers conference recently. The other leadership guest speaker was John E. Lyncheski, a Lawyer from Naples florida.
John delivered a funny motivational speech on the legal implications on hiring. Rarely do I find lawyers funny so I am blogging about the humorous motivational speaker.
Some of the interesting tidbits gleaned from the funny motivational speech were:
The Average employment discrimination verdict in North America is $107,000
Class Action Lawsuits can bankrupt an organization
Employment "Rules"are against employers
New Employment legislation is almost always employee friendly and and employer burden
Most Jurors are employees not bosses
A Survey of Potential Jurors ( Dispute Dynamics) suggests that 61% agreed it is an important function of juries to send messages to employers to improve their behavior
88% believe that companies care more about profits than their own employees
On hiring right the humorous motivational speaker and lawyer says, " its not about how many vacancies you fill, but how you fill your vacancies"
In regards to employment applications, 40% contain material lies or omissions
When it comes to hiring, what you don't know can and will hurt you.
