Business owners, managers and human resource personnel are invited to attend a legal seminar in Savannah that will help them stay on the right side of the state’s compensation and discrimination laws.

‘Georgia Employment Law” will be held on Tuesday, June 24, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the Coastal Georgia Center.

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

Young will discuss a wide range of 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.

The LAW series will continue with ‘Effective Recruiting, Screening and Background Investigations” in Savannah on July 22, ‘Internal Investigations and Documentation, Discipline and Discharge” in Brunswick on Aug. 12, and ‘Hostile Work Environment: A Case Review” in Savannah on Sept. 23.

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.
