Salisbury University hosts a seminar on employment law updates 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, January 19, in the Worcester Room of the Commons. “The expert knowledge presented in this conference is timely and critical because it provides up-to-date information for employers,” says Jeri Hurley, Development Program Specialist for SU’s Center for Professional Development. “The area of employment law is constantly changing and the updated laws must be followed by employers.
