Legal issues aren’t just for companies that have legal departments. Small businesses and their employees can just as easily become involved in situations where legal advice is required, especially when it comes to hiring and firing.
Although handling these complex issues may be tricky, knowing the landscape ahead of time can save a lot of trouble down the road. Nancy Mahony, a lawyer who served for 25 years as an attorney with the state, will give a free seminar on employment law and small businesses Thursday, January 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hamilton Public Library. The session will include time for questions and answers. For more information, visit www.princeton.score.org. call 609-393-0505 or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
