Robert Zaruta, Attorney with Knox Law, to speak at Manufacturers Growth Conference.

Robert Zaruta, Attorney with Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennett, P.C., is a featured speaker for the upcoming Manufacturers Growth Conference hosted by Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC). His presentation, Trump Change, will focus on what manufacturers should expect from the Trump Administration. Federal government policies, positions and regulations often have an impact on the growth of manufacturers. This apolitical presentation will provide manufacturers with a better understanding of what to expect under the new Administration. “While President Trump has only been in office for a few months, his campaign promises, statements, and appointments provide great insight into what changes he is likely to pursue,” Zaruta said. He will provide a closer look at what changes the Trump Administration is likely to bring to federal employment laws like OSHA, FLSA, the Affordable Care Act, as well as the Trump Administration’s impact on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Zaruta’s practice is focused on a variety of labor & employment matters, including litigation. He works with both private and public employers, counseling clients on compliance with workplace laws, hiring and firing issues, and collective bargaining.  His practice also includes representing employers in defense of discrimination, wage and hour, and other employment-related claims. He has represented employers in unfair labor practices actions, including appearances before the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, the National Labor Relations Board and the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board. Zaruta earned his Juris Doctor degree from Syracuse University College of Law and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh.

The Manufacturers Growth Conference will be held in St Marys (May 17) and Erie (May 18) from 7:30am-4:00pm. The event is sponsored by PNC, Knox Law, and Ben Franklin Technology Partners and information will focus on ‘growing people’ and ‘growing revenue’.
