Marking the First in a Series of Executive Breakfast Meetings in Charlotte
Upholding its commitment to the Charlotte business community, the national law firm Alston & Bird LLP is beginning its first year of Executive Breakfast Meetings which focus on current issues in labor and employment law. With the millennium approaching, and along with it, complexities presented by the increasing number of applicable state and federal laws, as well as the substantial threat of more-complex litigation, it is important to re-examine the basics of human resources from both a practical and legal standpoint. In response, this year’s first seminar will focus on “Hiring Issues.” In particular, the attorneys from Alston & Bird’s Labor and Employment Practice Group will discuss:
* The Best Scientific Selection Methods for Hiring Individuals;
* The Effective use of Reference and Background Checks; and
* Ways to Avoid ADA Liability in the Hiring Process.
Providing the latest information to the local business community, the seminar will be held on Friday, January 29th at the Charlotte Marriott City Center (100 West Trade Street). Breakfast will be served from 8:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 8:45 a.m. Questions and comments are welcome throughout the entire presentation and the seminar will conclude promptly at 10:00 a.m.
The purpose of the Executive Breakfast Meetings is to provide a service to the Firm’s clients and friends, and consequently, Alston & Bird does not charge any registration or attendance fee. For more information, or to register, please contact seminar coordinator Jennifer Krinock in the Charlotte office of Alston & Bird LLP at (704) 331-6111.
