Join the Nassau County Chamber of Commerce for Hot Topics: Help Wanted: Hiring Your First Employee on Friday, January 25th from 8:30-9:30 A.M. at the Nassau County Chamber of Commerce, 961687 Gateway Blvd., Suite 101-G, Fernandina Beach, Florida.
After nurturing your business from the ground up by yourself, you are finally ready to take the leap and hire. Now what? Hiring your first employee is not as easy as handing someone a few dollars in exchange for a few hours of work. Rather, it is a complex legal process with many potential pitfalls. Beginning with recruitment and ending with termination, this series of workshops is designed to provide you with a high-level review of your obligations as an employer. These workshops are designed not only for entrepreneurs who have not been through this process, but for anyone who is unsure of whether they are hiring correctly. Guest speaker attorney Elizabeth Joiner will address the best practices to avoid lawsuits and government interference, allowing you to focus instead on the business you love.
Elizabeth Joiner is an attorney at Constagny, Brooks, Smith & Prophete LLP in Jacksonville, Florida. Before joining the firm, she clerked for the Honorable Richard Smoak, where she developed an in-depth familiarity with state and federal law specific to employment litigation.
Hot Topics workshops are free for Chamber members and $25.00 for prospective members. Advanced payment and registration are always preferred. For more information, CLICK HERE or call (904) 261-3248.
