Michael J. Torchia, Esq.
Semanoff Ormsby Greenberg & Torchia, LLC
At times it seems nearly impossible to keep up with the ever-changing laws affecting businesses and their employees. This presentation reviews the most common “land mines” faced by employers and provides up-to-the-minute changes to employment laws and regulations. Rather than a legal review, this workshop strongly emphasized practical advice about how to be fair to employees while keeping the business out of legal trouble.
Topics will include employee leave; latest COVID-related regulations; employees versus independent contractors; classifying employees as exempt or non-exempt; overtime rules; criminal and other background checks; discrimination and harassment laws; non-competition and non-solicitation agreements; what employers cannot ask employees; and how to terminate an employee without getting sued.
Mr. Torchia is a managing member of Semanoff Ormsby Greenberg & Torchia, LLC, and chairs the firm’s employment law and commercial litigation section. In addition to counseling his corporate clients on employment law topics, Mr. Torchia acts as Pennsylvania employment counsel for several large national corporations. He has successfully established a workplace investigations practice and is routinely hired by other law firms to serve as an independent third-party investigator of a variety of employment-related claims and as an expert witness in the area of workplace investigations.
This 60-minute workshop, hosted by Bee Bergvall & Co., is a free, virtual event.
