Offit Kurman Attorney Neil A. Morris Presents at Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association Conference

Labor and Employment attorney Neil A. Morris recently gave a presentation at the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association’s 2014 Centennial Education and Training Conference. The conference was held in King of Prussia, PA. Morris’s presentation titled ” How to Discipline Employees and Make it Stick” was well attended. New laws are constantly being added at both the state and federal level concerning employee rights making it hard for Police Chiefs to retain their management rights.  The presentation focused on what police chiefs can do to do garner control of their workforce so that when necessary, discipline imposed will stick.
