Join us for a lively and informative program that could save your firm a significant amount of money!

Avoid landmines and liability for your office

If you have your own law firm, then you need to understand how to be an employer, and not just a lawyer, and how to avoid becoming entangled in the very disputes and lawsuits that you advise others about. As attorneys, we focus on solving our client’s problems. Unfortunately, we forget that our own employees may file claims against us or our firms based on their treatment in the workplace. This new program is designed specifically for solo practitioners and small to medium size firms looking for guidance in the employment law area.

Explore how the Federal, State and Local employment laws affect your firm

Learn what the many “protected categories” are, and, generally, what Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) prohibit; what “harassment” means and consists of; what you can and cannot ask in an interview; what constitutes “retaliation” and an “adverse action”; and what to do if an employee complains of discrimination or harassment. Discover

the diff erence between “employees” and “independent contractors,” as well as a little about the wage and hour elements of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), and what OSHA does.
