*** Workplace Harassment Investigations
Recent U.S. Supreme Court cases have greatly enhanced the importance of prompt and thorough legal investigations of claims of workplace harassment. In this CBA–CLE course, national speaker Jeff Johnson uses his expertise as an investigator to walk through the process — from the first signs of potential trouble to the final touches on the written report, and discussions of that report with interested employees. Register online: Workplace Harassment Investigations; April 5, 9 a.m.–4:45 p.m. 

*** You CAN!
CAN you? Collect a few cans of food? Fill a backpack with supplies for school children? Ride a bike? Collect a few toothbrushes? Donate your old business suits? Find a special toy for a child? If so, then the DBA Community Action Network (CAN) needs you! CAN is looking for committee members to get involved in one of its many projects.
