    Employment Law:  Hot Topics and Burning Questions

    Do you have burning questions you’d like to ask an employment lawyer?  Now is your chance!  fun, interactive presentation will address some of today’s hottest topics in employment law, including the Department of Labor’s new overtime rule, medical marijuana, the ever-changing NLRB rules on workplace policies, and more.  Additionally, Suzanne will answer questions from the audience so you can hear what issues are keeping other HR professionals up at night, and learn top tips for addressing these issues from an employment law expert.  Attendees can submit questions in advance to Suzanne, or ask them during the live session.

    Meet your presenter:

    Suzanne is passionate about helping her clients proactively and cost-effectively resolve workplace issues. She frequently conducts workplace training sessions and wage/hour audits; she drafts handbooks and other workplace policies; and she guides clients on employee termination, leave, and disciplinary issues.  When litigation cannot be avoided, Suzanne represents her clients in employment litigation and before employment agencies including the EEOC, FCHR, DOL, and NLRB. 

    Suzanne is very involved in the community, and currently serves on several local boards, including SHRM SWFL, Canterbury School Board of Trustees, Greater Fort Myers Chamber Board of Directors, and Greater Fort Myers Chamber Foundation Board of Directors.   She has been recognized by Gulfshore Business Magazine’s Forty Under 40, the Business Observer’s 40 Under 40, Florida Trend’s Legal Elite, and Florida Super Lawyers.  Suzanne frequently speaks to businesses and professional groups on various employment matters.
