Legal seminar for business owners and managers will be held in Brunswick

Business owners and managers are invited to attend a legal seminar in Brunswick that will address how supervisors should deal with an employee who has filed a harassment claim.

‘Retaliation Under Title VII” will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Coastal Georgia Community College.

Part of the Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) series sponsored by Georgia Southern University, the seminar will be taught by Jennifer Dickenson, an attorney in the employment law firm of Hunter, Maclean, Exley and Dunn, P.C.

Dickenson will address the Supreme Court’s evolving interpretation of retaliation and how it affects employers in Georgia and South Carolina.

The LAW series will continue in Savannah with ‘Recent Developments in the Fair Labor Standards Act” on March 25, ‘Basics of the Family and Medical Leave Act” on April 22, and ‘Georgia Employment Law” on June 24.

The LAW series will return to Brunswick for ‘Best Practices in Running Background and Reference Checks” on May 13.

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

Each seminar provides 1.5 recertification credit hours for individuals with (Senior) Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) certification.
