MINNEAPOLIS — Haller Kwan LLP founding partner Ben Kwan recently co-authored the latest edition of the Employment Law Primer, a comprehensive guide to employment law included in the Minnesota Continuing Legal Education desk book, Representing the Ongoing Business.
Kwan co-authored the Employment Law Primer with employment defense lawyer Colton Long of Seyfarth Shaw LLP in Chicago, an employment bar colleague and occasional worthy adversary on litigation matters. Kwan and Long updated and augmented the Primer to include more information on pitfalls for employers. Kwan brought the plaintiffs' lawyer's perspective to the work, which is intended to instruct everyday business attorneys on advising their clients on employment law matters.
"Our work as plaintiffs' employment attorneys will never be done so long as there are still human beings reporting to work everyday," Kwan said. "If we can contribute to our body of local legal scholarship in a way that prevents problems from ever happening, we're contributing to the greater good."
Kwan and Long will host a one-hour live webcast for attorneys on the topic of employment law through Minnesota CLE on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.
