Employment Law Seminar: Effictive Paperwork is Job #1

Employment-law firm LightGabler will present a free employment-law seminar from 7:30-9 a.m. Oct. 4 at Mulligan's Cafe & Bar, 3500 McCaw Ave., Santa Barbara.

The seminar is titled Paper is the Employer’s Best Friend — Effective Documentation in Employee Relations, Discipline, Arbitration and Severance/Releases.
Effective paperwork is the key to a solid defense in employment litigation. What you do up front can make a difference later, both in the workplace and in the courtroom.
LightGabler employment law attorney Jonathan Fraser Light will focus on the best documentation strategies for dealing with the most problematic areas of employer/employee relationships.

Seminar topics include offer letters, warnings and probation, termination, leaves of absence, disability accommodation, arbitration, confidentiality agreements and exempt versus non-exempt employee status.

Reservations for the seminar are required at least 24 hours in advance. To make a reservation, call 248-7089 or email [email protected] Indicate which seminar you will attend. A continental breakfast will be served.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
