    C-Sweet HR Roundtable

    Tuesday, February 27th

    12:00 noon PT/ 3:00 pm ET


    How to Hire, Fire, and Not Get Sued!

    Tips for Protecting Your Business

    From Employment Lawsuits


    Hundreds of thousands of employment-related claims are brought in every State every year by employees against their employers.  Meanwhile, employers need to comply with more and more newly passed employment laws every year.  In this program, an experienced employment law attorney shares with us best practices employers can adopt to better insulate themselves against legal liability. 


    We'll discuss:


    • Who can be classified as a freelancer or independent contractor, and who must be classified as an employee?

    • What does at-will employment really mean?

    • How to handle employee performance issues to reduce legal exposure? 

    • What are best practices when it comes to hiring and firing?

    • What steps can employers take to reduce vulnerability to unpaid wage and other wage and hour claims?

    • What leaves of absence are employees legally entitled to, including discussion of paid sick, pregnancy , medical leaves and accommodations.


    Bring your questions!


    Complimentary for C-Sweet members. Non-member tickets - $49.

      Meet the speaker



      Katie Kruger

      Professor of Business, University of Colorado


      Katie Kruger has taken an unusual path from the rough-neck oil fields of Kuparuk, Alaska to being a young policy-minded CEO for a $13B industry trade organization, to leading over 900 people and nearly $200M in revenue for a $32B publicly traded Fortune 150 company. Raised in rural Alaska and facing challenging family issues and responsibilities well beyond a typical teenager, her decision to join the nearly exclusive male workforce in Alaska’s remote oil fields was based on her motivation to go to college and find the next rung in front of her. Early in her career, Kruger worked for Norris Design as part of the teams planning Colorado’s most iconic master planned communities. Later she drove marketing, advertising & PR campaigns for McStain Neighborhoods and was an account executive for a national advertising agency.


      As she climbed, Kruger committed to giving back and has met with more than 1,200 young people in an effort to share networks and help others find their own rungs. Kruger was honored as a 2016 Colorado PowerBook Award recipient and a 2023 Executive Voice feature by the Denver Business Journal and is a 2023 Colorado Chamber Women’s History Month Honoree. Kruger served in leadership for the Denver Metro Chamber Legislative Policy Council from 2017 to 2019. She is also a highly-evaluated professor in the Finance Department at the University of Colorado Denver, where her classes are comprised of 80% diverse first-in-family educated talent.


      Today, she serves on the Board and Policy Council at the Downtown Denver Partnership, is the chair for the Downtown Theater District and is a voting director for Colorado Succeeds, an organization that also believes in a school day that better mirrors the work day.
