OUR NEXT SEMINAR SERIES WILL BE PRESENTED IN PERSON* AND VIA A LIVE BROADCAST ON SEPTEMBER 14, 15 & 21

In response to California’s reopening plan, Castle Publications is pleased to announce that the upcoming seminar series will be presented in person* as well as via a live broadcast. Attendees at Castle’s programs will see and hear Attorney Richard J. Simmons, one of the nation’s most highly sought-after speakers and authors on employment law. Showcasing his energetic presentation style, Mr. Simmons will present the upcoming series while featuring his invaluable Manuals as the program texts for each of the three seminars.

Each of the programs is designed to provide a meaningful examination of the state and federal laws in their respective areas, as well as many practical concerns. Particular attention will be devoted to areas of frequent concern to California employers and common pitfalls that have resulted in significant employer liabilities. The programs are intended to show employers HOW TO avoid, limit, and eliminate liabilities. Along with the extensive course materials (provided to all registrants), the programs will enable employers to understand what the laws require and how to comply.
