Previous Lunches:

May 18, 2022: Acquiring and Selling Businesses Part 1

Are you thinking about acquiring a business, how you will sell your business now or down the road, or simply what the value of your business and its real estate is currently worth? Join Transworld and Galvanize Law Group for this Tradecraft Industries Lunch and Learn about how small and mid-sized companies can navigate the complex waters of the sale, acquisition and growth of an organization and its commercial real estate.

June 15: Firing Employees Without Coming Under Fire: Reducing Risk in Terminations

Business owners need to maintain efficient and effective staff, who drive a company’s bottom line. With the pervasive labor shortages confronting nearly all industries, your company may end up with a new recruit that does not fit, or you may find that a longer-term employee is no longer working out. How can you terminate the employment relationship without getting your company into hot water? This presentation will discuss key risks that employers can face and some best practices for exposure mitigation, including Colorado Wage Claim Act compliance and personnel records keeping to mitigate discrimination claims. We will discuss recommendations for enacting consistent and professional procedures so that every “You’re fired” does not induce reality TV-worthy drama for your company.

July 21: Conflict Escalation and Resolution: Techniques You Can Use in Your Business and Personal Life - POSTPONED

NOTE: The July 21 Lunch and Learn has been postponed.
