Seminar on employment law to be presented in Osakis

The Osakis Chamber of Commerce will host an employment law seminar at the Walleye Lodge next Friday, September 14 at noon.

Tom Jacobson, an attorney with the Swenson Lervick law firm in Alexandria, will present the seminar.

Jacobson will focus on the top 10 things companies need to know about employment law.

According to Jacobson, "Employers pay dearly when they do not understand how easy it is to trip over employment laws. The goal of this seminar is to alert employers to the 10 most common traps and to get them thinking about how important it is for them to stay on top of these issues."

Jacobson has more than 20 years of experience, and he is certified as a labor and employment law specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association.

He is a frequent speaker on employment law topics and has handled a wide array of employment law matters.

In addition to his employment law practice, he handles many other types of litigation, and he serves as the Alexandria city attorney.
