I’ve often heard the complaint: It’s just too difficult to get to one of your firm’s breakfast briefings.

In response to that (and with the joys of modern technology), I think we’ve found a solution.

I’m pleased to announce the start of my firm’s monthly webinar series on hot labor and employment law topics. On the second Wednesday of every month, you can tune in for 30-60 minutes of information that you can use in your business.  Best of all, it’s free and all you need is a computer to listen.

The series kicks off on June 10th with a session that I’ll be presenting entitled "Connecticut Legislative Wrapup and What Employers Need to Know".

What’s Covered?

The 2009 regular legislative session of the Connecticut General Assembly just ended late last night. However, before time expired, the legislature passed several new and important laws that have a serious and direct impact on employers in the state.

In this session, participants will learn about::

  • Changes to the state FMLA laws that require, among other things, military caregiver leave
  • New requirements and penalties regarding personnel files
  • Widespread revisions to gender discrimination laws, including compensation
  • Other changes impacting employers just as prevailing wage issues and health insurance coverage

Participants will also learn about how these new laws interact with new federal laws and regulations on gender discrimination and FMLA.  We will also discuss two bills that are likely to brought up again, perhaps in a special session: a Paid Sick Leave bill and a bill banning so-called "captive audience" meetings.

Signup is as easy as going to this secure site.  Once registered, you’ll receive an e-mail confirmation with further instructions on how to join in.  

And did I mention it was free?

Hope to "see you" at the webinar.
