California Employment Law, Human Resources Challenges & Leadership Solutions

As an employer, are your protected from frivolous lawsuits?  As an employee, do you know your rights?  Is there a way for Employer and Employee to live in harmony and respect?

California Employment Law, Human Resources challenges, team building and leadership solutions are the topics of the Coffee & Connections’ mini-workshop.  Our experts will share tips and advice for keeping a happy and productive workspace and answer questions from the moderator and audience.   Attending this workshop will help you stay ahead of the curve and possibly avoid legal trouble before it arises.

Solopreneur and not an employee or employer?  You can still gain great insights to share with clients, friends, and families.  Information is power and sharing vital information with others helps build relationships.

Active members know that networking continues into and after the workshop.  We’re looking forward to including you!
