Seminar for business people will cover discrimination and compensation laws

How do head honchos in Georgia companies stay on the right side of discrimination and compensation laws?

By realizing that following federal regulations is just the first step in being a law-abiding corporate citizen.

Bosses, human resource directors and other managers are invited to sign up for a 90-minute seminar on ‘Georgia Employment Law” that will be held on Thursday, Nov. 9, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.

Part of the Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) series run by Georgia Southern University, the seminar will be taught by Jennifer Dickenson, an attorney with 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.

Seminar participants will learn about a wide range of state employment law topics, including the creation of at-will and contract employment, negligent supervision/retention of employees, defamation in the context of employment references, and workplace privacy.

Future LAW seminars will include ‘Federal Labor and Employment Law Record Keeping” in December and ‘Best Practices in Running Background and Reference Checks” in January.

The fee for each seminar is $69 per person. The fee will be reduced to $59 for any person who registers for three or more seminars, or for three or more people from the same firm.

Advance registration is required and may be made through Georgia Southern’s Continuing Education Center at (912) 681-5551. For more information, visit, or contact J. Marie Lutz, SPHR, at or (912) 871-1763.
