GroupOne would like to invite you to the complimentary educational event “Bullying and Workplace Harassment plus Discipline and Discharge on August 16 from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. The event is being hosted by our affiliate the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) in association with Hall Render, the nation’s largest law firm focused exclusively on healthcare.

Robin Sheridan, an attorney with Hall Render whose area of expertise is human resources and employment litigation, was announced today as the speaker of the event.

The complimentary session is the second of four events DFWHC is hosting in coordination with Hall Render as part of this summer’s “Hot Topic Healthcare Educational Series.”

As a shareholder of the firm, Robin Sheridan counsels health care clients in numerous aspects of health law. She serves as general counsel to a growing community hospital and advises on daily issues such as corporate governance, contract preparation, the legal implications of growth/development, physician transactions, patient care issues, accreditation, EMTALA, HIPAA and OSHA matters and compliance.

She also focuses her practice in medical staff relations, routinely counseling clients in a wide range of issues, including medical staff governance (e.g., medical staff by-laws, rules and regulations and fair hearing plans) and disruptive physician behavior.

Ms. Sheridan has experience in all aspects of employment law and human resources management, including hiring, discipline, discharge, drug testing, disability accommodation, union avoidance, discrimination and civil rights claims, implementation of family and medical leave and wage and hour laws. She also has experience preparing employment, severance, non-competition and confidentiality agreements.

Over the last 25 years, Ms. Sheridan has worked in various Human Resources positions, including as a Human Resources Director and Senior Corporate Counsel for a large Wisconsin-based company with a significant health care component. As a result, she has a unique understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by employers and the need for a practical approach.
