Herring-Wade-OPTGeorgia Southern University’s new season of Legal Awareness in the Workplace seminars begins in August and runs through January. Human Resource professionals, office managers, supervisors, and other business leaders are invited to attend 90-minute professional development seminars on important employment law issues. Seminars are held monthly, rotating from the law office of HunterMaclean in Brunswick, the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center on campus in Statesboro, and the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.

Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) 118: ADA Accommodations and Your Firm will be presented by attorney Wade Herring on Tuesday, September 22, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at HunterMaclean’s Brunswick office. Wade will inform participants of what the newly strengthened Americans with Disabilities Act means to employers.
