    James Burns, Partner ReedSmith Law Firm

    “Five New Changes in the Law Every Employer Needs to Know”

    Our August presenter provides a fantastic opportunity to hear one of the top employment law specialists in the entire country. Jim Burns is a partner with Reed Smith, a  top-ranked international law firm, headquartered in Chicago. His background covers 35 years defending claims of age, race, sex, and disability discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful discharge, defamation, breach of contract, and many other issues. 

    Jim's topic for us is “Five New Changes in the Law Every Employer Needs to Know.” You should not miss this timely talk by a truly knowledgeable speaker on how to manage legal risks in hiring, supervising, evaluating, investigating, and terminating employees, implementing reductions in force, creating and applying personnel policies, and dealing with labor unions.
