For Immediate Release

Philadelphia, PA | September 1, 2020

Offit Kurman’s Neil A. Morris, a principal and chair of the Philadelphia Labor & Employment group, and Gabriel Celii, who is also a member of the Labor & Employment group, gave a webinar entitled “Investigating Harassment & Other Claims in the Me Too Movement Era” to the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (“PSATS”).

PSATS aims to strengthen and preserve township government and represents just under 1500 member townships. They act in five primary ways to maintain and forward their organizational goals: 1) by lobbying, partaking in legislative research and analysis, and assisting in policy development; 2) offering learning and educational programs from elected and appointed public officials; 3) hosting a full range of communication options including but not limited to newsletters, brochures, and more; 4) offering insurance to members to meet the needs of their townships, including but not limited to medical, dental, disability, and more; and lastly 5) managing five other affiliate associations.

Mr. Morris and Mr. Celii have primarily been involved with PSATS in the capacity that allows them to present relevant information to the membership. Both Offit Kurman attorneys have presented for the group on multiple occasions and topics in the past. The presentation mentioned above, which was also the most recent presentation, covered the what is considered harassment, employer liability and how companies should handle claims, reporting issues, and workplace culture.

He concentrates in the areas of labor and employment, municipal labor law, employment discrimination, defamation defense, commercial litigation, and business litigation. He has served as Special/Labor Counsel for more than 35 Pennsylvania Townships and Boroughs, the County of Bucks and many private employers. He is often brought into municipalities to handle "crisis" situations involving employees and/or management.
