We are so excited to announce details for the 21st Annual HR Law & Solutions Seminar!  This year’s event will be held March 19, 2013 at Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa.

For our 21st seminar, we will offer sessions on workplace investigations, workers’ compensation, immigration, health care reform, and of course the case law

Most years our firm sponsors an annual weekend retreat, a holiday party, and several other social activities for the Henderson Franklin team. These events are typically loosely structured and serve to improve upon cohesion and camaraderie among a group whose individuals often operate independently. Many employers do the same, engineering team-building activities which run the gamut from planning elaborate out-of-state trips to sponsoring company sports teams or holding company picnics.  All are good gestures, and each tends to serve the intended purpose of boosting morale.

What you must consider, however, is the potential for injury at these activities, and whether the employer may be liable for such an injury. Playing sports or cutting loose on a retreat can certainly be great for morale, but it can also provide ample opportunity for injury.
