Thomas R. Basta was featured in the What's Working in Human Resources article, "Answers to Tough HR Questions." Full text can be found in the November 3, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Fox Rothschild's Thomas Basta was asked to give advice on the following question:

"An employee who took legal action – and won – against the company is about to return to work. Any advice on making his return a smooth one?"

Basta Answered, "Yes. Treat the person as if he’d never taken action against you in the first place. This will help prevent one bad situation from becoming a second bad situation."

"If it’s a case where there’s too much bad blood to co-exist, consider settling the employee’s action with a promise of a resignation. This will likely cost you a large cash outlay, however," said Basta.
