“We enjoy and look forward to the Offit Kurman Telebriefs calls that Howard Kurman does every other week. Our HRBP’s meet in my office to listen together and discuss the information afterwards. The information is always timely and relevant. It is a great way to keep up with court cases and legislation that affects our Employee Relations, Labor Relations, and Human Resource issues.”
- Stephen Heise, SPH, Vice President of Human Resources at Maryland Live! Casino & Hotel
"I have been a participant in Howard's bi-weekly Telebriefs since their inception. These "shots" of legal information have enabled me to provide senior management with valuable foresight into legal issues that impact our Company. Mr. Kurman is able to communicate complex legal matters in clear, concise language that non-attorneys can understand. "
- Michael DiMaggio, PHR, Director of Human Resources & Safety at Fidelity Engineering Corporation
"My company has been a client of Offit Kurman from the firm’s beginning, and I’ve worked with Howard Kurman for more than 15 years on all sorts of issues and litigation. Participating in Howard’s bi-weekly telebriefs has added a very valuable way for me to regularly receive a high-level explanation of recent and anticipated court decisions, agency rulings, legislation that are “must know’s” for anyone charged with guiding or protecting their company from mistakes in the employment or labor arena. The guidance Howard provides on the telebriefs is practical, succinct, and helps me decide on what issues my company needs more in-depth legal assistance from him or other Offit Kurman attorneys. I highly recommend the telebriefs to anyone in human resources-related work, whether you are very experienced, just starting out, and anywhere in between."
- Ann W. Barnes
As a Human Resources professional, I look forward to Howard’s bi-weekly Telebriefs® and have participated in them for more than a year. The information Howard shares is always relevant and timely and is a great way to keep up with current issues impacting the workplace. Howard has a keen sense of where legislation and court cases are going and can often predict the outcome. The guidance and insights he provides in 30 minutes twice a month, and in a manner non-lawyers can understand, assists in developing or revising policies to minimize legal risk to the organization. I’ve learned something new on each Telebrief ®.
