Wessels Sherman is excited to announce a two-city tour seminar scheduled just ahead of “tax day” 2019, hosted respectively by Joseph Laverty and James Sherman, Managing Shareholders of our Iowa and Minnesota offices. These half-day seminars may not help businesses with their IRS filings, but they most certainly will help employers deal with some of the most important workplace problems trending in 2019.

These fast-paced seminars cover a variety of critical issues of the day - that employers, human resource professionals and supervisors are most likely to encounter and that pose complicated legal pitfalls to be avoided. The presenters bring decades of experience in labor and employment law, assisting employers from a broad array of industries, including manufacturing, hospitality, transportation, agriculture, construction, healthcare and professional services. More importantly, the presenters communicate complex legal issues in terms that are understandable and therefore useful in the workplace.

These seminars offer practical advice and solutions aimed at keeping your organization out of trouble and out of court, while fostering positive and productive employment relationships with your company’s employees.
