It's not too late to sign up for The Employer Assembly of Kings County Seminar which will be held on Tuesday, February 14 at COS Hanford from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.


The first of this year's seminars - The 2012 Labor Law Update - will discuss many of the over 60 new laws and court decisions that will impact you as an employer. The presenter, Attorney Anthony Raimondo of McCormick Barstow LLP, is an outstanding speaker on labor law issues. He represents employers in state and federal court actions ranging from harassment and discrimination to wage and hour disputes. He also defends employers in administrative agency proceedings and investigations including the National Labor Relations Board, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board, the California Labor Commissioner, U.S. Department of Labor, Cal/OSHA, EEOC, and others. Most importantly, he regularly counsels employers on workplace litigation avoidance.
