For a small business owner, navigating labor and employment laws can be one of the most difficult and potentially costly parts about doing business. A program offered by the IndyBar Labor & Employment Law Section seeks to lessen this burden by providing employers with valuable tips and information in an informal—and affordable—setting.
The Small Business Employment Law Seminar will take place Thursday, Nov. 13 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Indianapolis Bar Association (IndyBar) office at 135 N. Pennsylvania Street, Suite 1500. Cost per attendee is $25.
The program is designed for smaller employers—including solo practitioners and lawyers in small firms—that may not have their own human resources professionals or employment counsel. Presenters will help attendees understand which employment laws apply to them, best practices for hiring and discipline, wage issues and essentials for personnel documentation.
Program planners from within the Labor and Employment Law Section hope that the inaugural event proves to be a beneficial resource for small businesses and smaller employers.
“Employment law impacts a large percentage of the population on a daily basis—as employees and as employers,” says Christopher Murray, an attorney with Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart PC and one of the program planners. “The IndyBar’s Labor and Employment Law Section believes that increasing general knowledge and understanding of employment law is a valuable public service.”
