It’s been a while since I’ve given an update on upcoming speaking gigs, and I have a few upcoming. So, without further adieu.
- On July 27, I will be delivering Hot Topics in Wage-Hour Law for 2016 for the Cleveland HR Star Conference.
- On September 27, I’ll be speaking at Meyers Roman’s next Breakfast Briefing, The Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Rule Changes—Are you Ready?! The free event will run from 8 – 10 am at the Cleveland East DoubleTree, and 2 hours of HRCI credits are pending. Email Sara Cox for more information or to RSVP.
- Finally, on November 15, I’m giving the Keynote at Workforce Focus on Law in Chicago. The topic—The Top 5 Mistakes Employers Make.
