Details about the webinar are below. If you were unable to attend, you can download the recorded webinar.

When it comes to employment issues, knowing what to do and when to do it can be difficult – and missteps can result in costly litigation. Join Robert and Adam for this informative and engaging session on employment law. Get the latest legal developments and work through some of the most challenging problems facing the food and beverage industry.

Robert and Adam will present hypothetical situations that illustrate what to do and what not to do in various circumstances. From discrimination, harassment and wrongful discharge allegations to Wage Act violations, NLRA, ADA and FMLA issues, you will learn about the approaches and tactics that can be used to avoid employment claims and mitigate the matters that do arise. Attendees will benefit from the attorneys’ collective experience defending employment claims and counseling organizations on preventive strategies, and their experience representing employees in a range of employment cases, with a focus on wage and hour class actions. The speakers will highlight areas where employers may be most vulnerable, including actions brought under the “single integrated employer” theory.
