Attorney?Mary Rosen named president of ‘Impact100’ in Oakland

Mary Pat Rosen, an attorney with Charfoos & Christensen in Royal Oak, has been chosen as president of the “Impact100” chapter in Oakland County.

Impact100 is a women’s philanthropic group “seeking to transform lives in their local community” by awarding high-impact grants to nonprofits in five focus areas: Arts and Culture; Education; Environment and Recreation; Family; and Health and Wellness.

The first chapter of Impact100 was founded in 2001 in Cincinnati and there are now more than 30 chapters across the U.S. Each chapter’s objective is to have a minimum of 100 members who donate $1,000 annually with 100 percent of the proceeds raised earmarked for charitable use.

An attorney with Charfoos & Christensen since 1988, Rosen will serve a two-year term as president of Impact100 in Oakland County.


Seminar series to look at current labor and employment law issues

Raising the Bar, an educational series raising employer awareness of current issues in employment and labor law and offered by Detroit-based management side labor and employment law firm Nemeth Law, P.C., returns Jan. 18 to cover the topic of “How Labor and Employment Law has Changed Over the Past Year and What You Need to Know to Remain Compliant in 2017.”

The past year was a roller coaster ride for employers and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down in 2017, according to Terry Bonnette, a partner at Nemeth Law.

“In mid-2016, the Department of Labor issued new overtime regulations that would have affected 4.2 million exempt salaried employees if those regulations had not been blocked in November by a federal court order. Plus, a presidential election always brings numerous questions about the new administration's policies and how they will influence federal agencies, the Supreme Court and multiple areas of labor and employment law — and this election perhaps even more so,” Bonnette said.

At the Jan. 18th Raising the Bar session, Nemeth Law attorneys will discuss how these changes can affect employment practices over the coming year. 

Raising the Bar will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Management Education Center, 811 West Square Lake Road, Troy, 48098.  Continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m.  The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 12 p.m. with one 15-minute break. 
The cost of the event is $75 per person and pre-registration is required.  To register, e-mail Pamela Perkowski at pperkowski@nemethlawpc.com or call 313.567.5921.
