Are Disability Claims Disabling Employers?

It is estimated that such policies, if properly implemented, can reduce defense costs in labor disputes by as much as 90 percent. At the same time, such policies vastly enhance the employer’s prospects of winning at trial by replacing employee-friendly juries with impartial arbitrators.
This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 36 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.
Members are encouraged to bring their questions. Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
