SuperVision Comes to Pittsburgh

SuperVision_ColorYou know employees are your most valuable asset, but what does that mean in practical terms? As the employer’s market of the past several years remains in flux, what can you do to ensure you attract and retain the best and brightest on your team? How can you minimize your chances for costly litigation? How can you ensure that not only do your employees feel like valued members of your team, but that you are maximizing the value your company gets from its employees?

Join us at PNC Park in Pittsburgh to discuss the human resources issues important to you. We will discuss talent recruitment and onboarding practices, new NLRB rules to watch out for, employee leave scenarios, workplace investigations, and terminations. This year’s events also will provide a unique opportunity for you to have time “off-the-clock” with a lawyer to discuss specific issues of concern to you.

SuperVision™ is offered at no charge to our friends and clients who would benefit from education on labor and employment issues, including company CEOs, presidents, human resource directors, general operations managers and in-house counsel. Legal and HR continuing education credits will be available to attendees as an added benefit of attendance.

The app, which is available for free download in the Apple App Store, is designed to help corporate executives, general counsel and human resources professionals with the most frequent questions encountered by the firm’s labor and employment attorneys.

“We are excited to share the latest information on human resources issues and regulations via this new channel,” said Eric W. Iskra, chair of Spilman’s Labor and Employment Practice Group. “This app is a perfect complement to our SuperVision labor and employment symposium series and our quarterly e-newsletter. Finding new ways to deliver additional value to our clients is always front-of-mind at Spilman.”

The app allows users to explore common employment law situations, including those relating to overtime pay, final wage payment and employee complaints on social media. Following the app’s simple decision tree, users can gain a better understanding of their particular employment issue, what their options are, and when to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable legal advisor. Spilman worked with Pittsburgh design firm Quest Fore for the app coding and programming.

Spilman’s Labor and Employment Practice Group has been ranked at the national level through the Best Law Firms survey, a combined effort of U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers®, for excellent representation of management in employment disputes.
