Jack Cade's Workplace Nightmares
Program length: 147:00

A supervisor's job doesn’t have to be overly complicated. In today's modern workplace simply using a "common-sense approach" will not shield your supervisors and managers from potential liability. A supervisor's decisions or statements that may appear insignificant often lead to trouble and can expose the supervisor and the organization to costly litigation. Supervisors now must comply with an increasing number of laws and regulations - just ask Jack Cade.

Jack Cade’s Nightmare II: Double Liability

Conflict management involves carefully mediating between two or more disagreeing parties. Double Liability includes a program intended for both new and experienced supervisors and managers, and also offers a version designed for front-line employees and all non-management staff.


Most supervisors and managers understand that they may be held liable for harassing or abusive conduct against an employee. What many supervisors don't realize is that they can also be held personally liable for failing to respond to reports of harassment, threats of violence, defamation and abusive conduct between their subordinate employees - even when the supervisor is not directly involved.

Key Training Points:

  • Build awareness among managers of the various federal and common law causes of action.
  • How to minimize potential liability.
