It's a New Year and a new legislative session. There are several new employment laws that have gone into effect and many more on the horizon. In this episode, we address trends across the country and the impact to businesses. In addition, we discuss advocacy and how business owners can get involved. And of course....we talk about cocktails!

As a business owner or executive, have you thought your organization needed more support in Human Resources? But you don't need a full-time HR professional?
