Castle Publications is pleased to announce that the upcoming seminar series will be presented live and online. Attendees at Castle's upcoming programs will see and hear Attorney Richard J. Simmons, one of the nation's most highly sought-after speakers and authors on employment law. Showcasing his energetic presentation style, Mr. Simmons will present the upcoming series live via broadcast, while featuring his invaluable Manuals as the program texts for each of the three seminars.
While in-person presentations are not yet available, this will allow Mr. Simmons to replicate his highly attended seminars as closely as possible. This will occur with the benefit of his unique and coveted desk references that will be provided in advance of the sessions. The series will cover emerging issues related to wage and hour, employment discrimination, and employee handbook considerations for employers. Each session will include a discussion of key issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic in the area.
