U.S. Supreme Court

With all the weather changes in Connecticut over the last few days, I’m reminded of Mark Twain’s quote: “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.”But life still goes on in New England and I’ve got two upcoming presentations to mention.

This Wednesday, I have the privilege of speaking to the Connecticut Association of Licensed Private Investigators at their monthly meeting.  We’ll focus our discussion on pre-employment background screening laws and the trouble that both employers and private investigators can get in for not following the rules.

I’ve touched on the subject in some prior posts here, but I’ll talk about all the latest developments including some proposed bills on the subject as well.

Later in the month, on January 28th (from 8:30a-10a), I’ll be speaking to CBIA’s HR Council about the state and federal court decisions from 2013 that will influence how human resources practitioners do their jobs.

The CBIA (The Connecticut Business and Industry Association) routinely puts on good programs for human resources professionals and I’ve been fortunate to have spoken to a few over the last couple of years. The price is just $15 (for members) and it’s open to both CBIA members and non-members alike.

If you’re interested, you can sign up directly at the CBIA’s website here.

My thanks to both organizations for the invitations and I hope to see a few readers there.
