Topics:  This year’s seminar is a full day, which permits us to cover more important employment-law topics than ever before.  Of course, we’ll review the critical court decisions and pieces of key legislation that have been issued during the last twelve months.  We will also address the changes we expect to occur in the first twelve months of the new administration.  Additionally, we’ll provide a recap of legal happenings in the public sector, update you on the changes to the FMLA and the new COBRA subsidy, discuss how to manage a layoff and how to keep employees engaged in the present economy, address the ins and outs of screening job applicants with online tools, and offer insight on how to deal with an unemployment appeal.
