What can an employer do to prevent workplace violence? How can a company ensure it is complying with immigration laws?  These are some of the issues addressed at Polsinelli Shughart’s Workplace Issues and Answers Program at the Four Season’s St. Louis, December 1, 2011.

The firm’s Labor and Employment attorneys discussed issues including social media, OSHA, and NLRB and Enforcement Actions. The half-day seminar provided information on human resources, employment and benefit issues that seem to change daily and make front page news.
