Can you believe it’s been two months since we hosted the 25th Anniversary HR Law & Solutions seminar? Where does the time go?! Thank you so much to the nearly 400 people who attended – it was a record-breaking day! As usual, our Henderson Franklin team had a blast getting to catch up with so many familiar faces at what truly feels like a big family reunion. We loved seeing many new faces as well!

We had a full day of speakers on various legal topics, a delicious lunch, and great networking opportunities. At the end of the day, we had a celebration for our 25th Anniversary that included cocktails and an AMAZING cupcake tower from our favorite chocolatier Norman Love Confections.

Additionally, we inducted Nathalie Galvan, Lucille Ford (not pictured), Cindy Kelberer, Judy Marcucci, and Joanne Lashey in our HR Law & Solutions Hall of Fame (see photo, below). Additional photos from the day can be found on Henderson Franklin’s Facebook page.

Special thanks goes to our amazing major sponsors, Lykes Insurance and Gravity Benefits. Our seminar would not be the same without our long-standing partnership with Lunch Sponsor Lykes, and we were proud to welcome Gravity back for the second time, this year as our 25th Anniversary Celebration Sponsor. We look forward to partnering with both groups for years to come.

I also want thank EEOC Regional Attorney Robert Weisberg and plaintiff’s attorney Ben Yormak for braving the HR/employer-filled crowd to offer great advice and tips for employers to avoid ending up on the wrong side of a lawsuit! Kudos to the crowd for not peppering these “bad” guys with anything but great questions (I warned them to watch out for flying food!). Over the next several weeks here on the blog, I will be answering some of the pre-submitted questions we were not able to address on the panel. As always, if you have additional questions you’d like me to tackle in a blog post, feel free to reach out to me at any time.

On behalf of our entire employment law team, thank you all so much for making our 25th Anniversary so wonderful. It truly is such an incredible day, and one we all look forward to every year.  We couldn’t do it without your support year after year.  Now, here’s to the next 25!
