Posted in on December 11, 2014

Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro P.C., recently added Lunch ‘n Learn sessions to its speaker’s bureau offerings. The Firm had previously announced a Speaker’s Bureau, consisting of Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro, P.C. attorneys, to speak at events for professional as well as civic organizations.

“The Lunch ‘n Learn sessions, which will typically take place during lunch hours, involve our attorneys visiting local businesses to speak for about 30-45 minutes on legal topics that directly impact their staff and business,” said Paul Barbadoro, a partner at the Firm. “One of the first topics we would like to offer to speak to local businesses about is the recently passed ballot question 4.”

Ballot question 4 would allow workers to earn one hour of paid time off for personal illness or medical appointments, for an illness in the family, or to deal with a domestic abuse situation for every 30 hours worked. Employees will not be able to earn more than 40 paid hours per year. The law, passed by voters on November 4, will go into effect in July 2015.

“This law is a game changer for a number of smaller businesses,” said Barbadoro. “The Lunch ‘n Learn sessions can give business owners and staff an overview of what the new law will mean.”

In addition to the Lunch ‘n Learn sessions, the Baker, Braverman & Barbadoro Speaker’s Bureau covers a number of small business topics, including: Legal Do’s and Don’ts for Start-ups; Family Business: Passing it on to the Next Generation; How to Avoid Employee Wrongful Termination Claims; Protecting Intellectual Property; Common Mistakes When Naming a Business; Does My Business Need an Attorney (the answer will surprise you); Sole Proprietor? LLC? C-Corp? How to Choose; Complex Business Litigation; Personal Injury Law; Real Estate Litigation; and more.

“We view the Speaker’s Bureau as an extension of our community service program. That’s why we typically do not charge a fee for professional organizations and never for civic organizations.” said Barbadoro.
