    Topic: Employment Law Update – What to Expect in 2013

    President Obama has been reelected for another four years. Will his final term in office embolden him to take and authorize further pro Union and pro employee labor and employment action through regulations, Executive Orders and statutes or will the President become more compromising? This program promises to be an interactive presentation designed to help employers determine where they might focus their pro active human resource plans and strategies.


    Presenter: Richard Marguiles, Esq

    Jackson Lewis, LLP
