I’m pleased to let you know that my firm, Pullman & Comley, LLC is again sponsoring two seminars on labor & employment law next month.  These complimentary seminars, which include both breakfast and lunch, will be held on October 4th in Hartford and October 18th in Norwalk.   They will run from about 8:00a-2:30p each day.  I’m helping to organize them and will be speaking at both.

We’ve got a lot to cover.  But among the topics we’ll be talking about:

  •  With “Friends” Like These: Where We Go From Here on Social Media & Privacy  — After several years of wandering, we are finally starting to get some guidance on employer regulation and use of social media. But it may not be coming up roses for employers.
  • Sick of Work? Strategies for Dealing with Absent Workers — This year, Connecticut employers have had to grapple with Paid Sick Leave and a whole host of newer guidance on various federal laws. Where those laws intersect, however, can leave one big headache for employers.
  • What’s New in 2012? Key Legislative Developments & Court Decisions — Although 2012 was not as busy at the Connecticut legislature as other years, it still brought about some important developments. Moreover, some recent decisions at the U.S. Supreme Court and Connecticut Supreme Court will have a dramatic impact on how employers deal with issues like healthcare and religious freedom.

And just like last year, we will have several prominent keynote speakers for each event, including Judge Robert Holzberg, who is retiring from the Connecticut Superior Court bench later this month.  Judge Holzberg has been described as a “master craftsman of courtroom settlement.”  You won’t want to miss his perspectives.   We’ll announce the other speakers in the runup to the event.

As you might imagine for a free event, space is limited and attendance is by invitation only. But if you’re interested or would like more information, please contact seminar@pullcom.com

Hope to see some of you there.
