Legal seminar in Savannah will focus on hiring and firing process

The Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) seminars for administrators, human resource personnel and other business people will continue in Savannah with ‘Internal Investigations and Documentation, Discipline and Discharge.”

The seminar will be offered on Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Coastal Georgia Center. Participants will learn about the legal requirements of running a thorough employee investigation for harassment, accidents and other issues.

From pre-hire procedures through discipline and discharge, the seminar will also cover the most effective ways to avoid employment-related claims against the company.

Sponsored by Georgia Southern University’s Continuing Education Center, the seminar will be taught by Sarah Lamar, an attorney from the employment law firm of Hunter, Maclean, Exley and Dunn, P.C. The session will last from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

The series of LAW seminars will continue with ‘Recent Developments in the Fair Labor Standards Act” in October, ‘Georgia Employment Law” in November, and ‘Federal Labor and Employment Law Record Keeping” in December.

The fee for each seminar is $69 per person. The fee for each session will be reduced to $59 per person for anyone who signs up for three or more sessions, and for groups of three or more people from the same organization.

Georgia Southern is an HRCI-approved provider that offers 1.5 (Senior) Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) re-certification credit hours for each seminar.
