Quest Legal Seminars Serve HR Professionals Hungry for More than Breakfast Fare

Quest Behavioral Health will present Anthony Bowser, Esq. of CGA Law Firm, speaking on “Employment Law Update: Balancing Your Legal Risk” on April 24th in Lancaster, May 1st in Camp Hill, and on May 7th in Reading, PA.
April 3, 2012 - PRLog -- For three days this spring, Human Resources professionals from around the region will be treated to a gourmet breakfast, served with a side of legal education. Quest Behavioral Health has invited more than 1,200 area professionals to attend one of the sessions in their annual Spring Breakfast Series. Events will be held on April 24th in Lancaster, May 1st in Camp Hill and on May 7th in Reading, PA. The featured speaker this year is Anthony Bowser, Esq. of CGA Law Firm, presenting “Employment Law Update: Balancing Your Legal Risk.”

Quest Behavioral Health offers the Spring Breakfast Series as a way to offer valuable content and connect with their clients and constituents in Human Resources. In addition to the seminar’s legal content, attendees may receive Recertification Credit through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI). The program has been pre-approved by HRCI for two (2) general recertification credit hours.

By providing attendees a choice of several area locations, a convenient morning meeting time, and free breakfast, Quest hopes to draw a crowd at each of the three sessions. Connie Stock, Director of Sales and Customer Service for Quest, explains, “The breakfasts are a great opportunity for area professionals to attend an event with useful information, and for us to build and strengthen relationships with our clients and area businesses, school districts and organizations.” Quest’s Employee Assistance Program began in 2001, and Stock introduced the Spring Breakfast Series in 2005 as an extension of the EAP’s marketing efforts.

Under the headline “Employment Law Update: Balancing Your Legal Risk”, Attorney Anthony Bowser will highlight HR-focused legal topics such as Social Networking and ADAAA Update. The program focus will include addressing hiring concerns, social media policies for employees, the expanding definition of “disability” and summarizing the latest NLRB cases and EEOC rulings. Attorney Bowser, of CGA Law Firm, concentrates his legal practice on labor and employment law, civil litigation, as well as business and commercial law.

Current legal trends and relevant information make the Breakfast series a regular event for some invitees. “This breakfast series always provides up-to-date information about legal issues faced by employers today. With the fast pace of technology, it pays to know what is happening and what we should be prepared for in the coming year,” explains Valerie Klingelsmith, PHR, from Exeter Township School District.

Joanne DeHaven, SPHR, Transition/Integration Manager with Keystone Human Services comments, “I have attended this event for, I believe, the past three years at The Conestoga Country Club (in Lancaster). The accommodations and service are wonderful and the presentations have been very informative. I make a point to bring my HR Specialist to this event since it is well worth the time to attend. I’d recommend this to any HR Professional.”

The organizers hope to see an increased response from last year. A total of 135 people attended the three sessions in 2011. Anyone interested in attending one of this year’s Breakfast Seminars may contact Linda Beegle, Account Representative at Quest, at (717) 851-1409 or via email at
