On Friday, May 13th, 2011, Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader teamed up with Fairview Insurance Agency and Apogee Insurance Group to deliver an important and informative seminar Employment Practices and Liability Insurance.

With an overwhelming response and a packed room of business owners, insurance agents, attorneys, and professionals, Andrew Kinsey and Phil Morin of FPSF's Labor and Employment Group offered pertinent and valuable information about Employment Practices throughout the Tri-State Area.
