Spring 2009 Labor & Employment and Employee Benefits Seminar in Tulsa


Besieged by mounting legislative, regulatory and economic pressures, employers are facing some of their toughest challenges and decisions yet. Layoffs, salary freezes, changes in benefits and company reorganizations are commonplace, and employee protections are on the rise.  The result:  increased responsibilities for employers and employee benefits plan sponsors, and an increased propensity to file lawsuits by employees.  In these tough times, the roles of HR and benefits professionals have never been more important.

McAfee & Taft invites you to “The Bottom Line” Spring 2009 Labor & Employment and Employee Benefits Seminar.

Tuesday, April 28th
8:30am – Noon
