Each spring, Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman, PC provides employers with an annual review of the prior year and an update on various labor and employment law topics. Please join our labor and employment attorneys for a half-day briefing on developments in case law, statutes and regulatory trends that could have an impact on your business.

The 3rd Annual Labor & Employment Law Seminar, scheduled for March 24, 2011 in Philadelphia and March 30, 2011 in Pittsburgh, will address the following topics:

Case Law and Legislative Update

Discussion and analysis of significant trends and developments in 2010 in labor and employment law, with particular emphasis on how cases decided in the past year affect your business from a practical perspective.

Social Media in the Workplace

The growth of social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, has exploded in recent years. However, employers have been slow to adopt policies for appropriate use of these web sites; thereby exposing themselves to risks such as harassment, dissemination of trade secrets and lost productivity. A recent case decided by the Labor Board, in which a woman was terminated after posting critical remarks regarding her supervisor on Facebook, may serve as a template for future legal opinions, as it is one of the first cases in this evolving area. Learn the do’s and don’ts of social networking and how to implement best practices to help minimize your risk.

Protecting Your Business Against Unfair Competition

How can you protect your business when a trusted employee suddenly quits and joins forces with your direct competitor? In this session, we will discuss the nuts and bolts of trade secret law and non-compete agreements, how to be proactive and what can be done after you discover employee disloyalty.

What Every Employer Needs to Know About Traditional Labor Law

With the Labor Board now up to its full complement of members, insight will be provided on recent developments, cases and trends. We will discuss topics such as “protected and concerted activities” and “employee suggestion committees” which affect every union and non-union employer.
