The Top 7 Things You Need to Know Right Now About Employment Law

Love was in the air this Valentine’s day, as firm founder Austin Kaplan presented his beloved “Top 7 Things” presentation at the Capital Area Paralegal Association’s (CAPA) Annual Full day CLE Seminar.



CAPA is a voluntary non-profit corporation comprised of paralegals and legal assistants, students, and vendors in Austin, Texas and the Central Texas area.  CAPA was organized in September 1978 by a small group of pioneering paralegals and has since grown into the largest Texas affiliate of NALA – The Paralegal Association.

What are the Top 7 things you need to know about employment law in Austin Texas right now, you ask? At the CLE, we covered:

1.Wage and Hour Issues 2.#MeToo 3.Wrongful Termination 4.The Bermuda Triangle 5.Documentation and Dispute Avoidance 6.Epic Systems and 7.????????????????????????

We can’t tell you the mystery topic. That one is a secret between us and CAPA.

We can say that we spent most of our time discussing overtime and unpaid wages, sexual harassment, and leave issues. The CAPA group was engaged, attentive, and generally an outstanding audience. We are lucky to have such a great professional organization here in Austin, Texas.
