[fname], unfortunately we live in a litigious society.  Not only are there an abundant number of laws and procedures you have to follow as an employer but as a dentist there are additional occupational exposures to you, your staff and your practice.


To protect yourself against it, it is best to be fully aware of all the above so you are in compliance and don't risk your time & money having to go to court to defend yourself.


That is why I am highly recommending you attend the 2015 Employment Law Updates and Hot Topics For Dental Practices seminar on Friday, January 23, 2015 presented by Anita York, Partner at Scott & Whitehead.  Detail are below and a link to the enrollment form.

2015 Employment Law Updates and Hot Topics For Dental Practices
This course meets the Board’s requirements for
3.0 units of continuing education.

WHY ATTEND?:  As we prepare to leave 2014 behind and enter 2015, our political leaders continue to make it difficult to do business in California, especially when it comes to the ever-increasing number of employment law mandates. While dental practice employers are usually very generous with their staff, generosity does not equal legally compliant. As backward as it may sound, the more generous you are, the higher the potential “damages” award against you for any mistakes you might make. This is especially true with respect to employee compensation (including production-based pay, overtime and bonuses), employee benefits (which just got more complicated with the new paid sick leave law), and mandatory vs. not mandatory leaves of absence. In this program, we will discuss all of these topics and more.

2015 Legal Updates and Hot Topics Morning Break Wage and Hour Landmines & related Hot Topics
Our discussion will include a new laws update for 2015, including statutes and cases, plus other hot topics and important trends in employment law claims. During our break, we will serve refreshments and have an open forum to talk through employment issues and questions you may want to discuss After our break, we will discuss Wage and Hour for dental practices, traps for the unwary, alternative workweek schedules, employee benefits, and related topics.
