A few weeks ago, I posted a "Save the Date" for a half-day seminar that my firm’s Labor & Employment Law Department and teased that we had some great things lined up.  Today I get to share the exciting information and write to encourage you to sign up quickly as we expect this to fill up quickly.

The labor & employment seminar, titled "Meeting Today’s Employment Law Challenges: Practical Solutions to Complex Workplace Problems" is now set for May 20, 2011 from 8-1:30 p.m. at the Hartford Club.

First, the headlines:

  • U.S. Congressman Joseph Courtney will be our breakfast speaker.

  • This half-day program is free to all attendees and will feature complimentary breakfast and lunch as well. 

If that isn’t enough of a reason to attend, here are some additional details on the rest of the morning.

The day will include four sessions by Pullman & Comley attorneys who will offer practical, real-world answers to the myriad labor and employment law issues facing Connecticut businesses.

Among the topics:
