Commercial law regulates corporate contracts, hiring practices, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods. Though this is woven into modern-day life, certain things from the employment law remain ignored or neglected.

These neglected parts of the employment law may bring businesses and corporates a lot of trouble.

    This webinar was great! In the beginning of my career in preparing taxes there was one client that had a nanny for her child, and I had to search for someone within the company to assist with the return. After watching this webinar I believe I'm capable of not only assisting the client with their household employee but advising them of whom to contact to get legal advice. Great webinar and very informative. Thank You!

    This program was extremely disappointing. First, it was marketed as a "Live" webinar. It was not live, but a series of pre-recorded sessions. Not only were they pre-recorded, but they were out of date and nearly a year old. This resulted in the same material being repeated multiple times and the same poll questions being asked multiple times. The material was stale and no longer relevant. It was a wildly inefficient program.
