Next Lunchtime Learning class:
"Hidden Employment Law Liabilities" - February 6, 2019, 12 - 1 p.m.

Building a business requires that those involved take the time to protect it. Business owners should be aware of little known or less common issues that can hinder business. During this presentation, Chad Staul, Quinlivan & Hughes, P.A. will lead a candid discussion on a variety of employment law topics that can unwittingly espose employers to liability. Business owners, managers, and HR professionals will find this class especially useful. Register by February 4 to be included in the lunch count.

Thank you to Pro Staff for sponsoring this session!
