The law firm of Hunter, Smith & Davis will present its annual seminar for area employers on Oct. 27 at the Millennium Centre in Johnson City. The seminar, titled “Hope and Change: Employment Laws are Changing, Better Hope You are Prepared,” will focus on recent developments in employment and labor law and changes coming in the near future.
The firm’s attorneys will address amendments to the Americans With Disabilities Act that have expanded its coverage; how retaliation claims have greatly eroded the Employment-At-Will doctrine; ways the National Labor Relations Board is using regulation to do what couldn’t be accomplished legislatively; workers’ compensation’s continued evolution; how strictly an employer can regulate body art and piercings; an update on immigration law; and reasons distinguishing between employees and independent contractors has become more difficult and potentially costly.
This half-day session includes a continental breakfast and lunch. The cost is $30 for first registration and $20 thereafter. Call 1-877-552-9928 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. For any questions, call Steve Darden at 283-6303.
