No. 8--If an employee does sue over his or her discharge, the employer should not be too
quick to settle the lawsuit
Don't you just love this one? The message, essentially, is this: No matter how badly you screwed someone, no matter how wickedly you violated federal law, drag the process out as long as possible.
This speaks volumes about how managers, and their lawyers, think. Here is the exact advice for managers: "Force the employee to expend time, effort and money to pursue the lawsuit before settling it."
By saying the case should be settled, the lawyers essentially are admitting that management has wronged someone. But they encourage employers to toy with injured people anyway.
We haven't reached this stage yet. But to put it bluntly, these are the words of evil individuals.
No. 9--Prior to discharging an employee, make sure that he or she has not recently exercised
any "protected rights"
