Benefits of Attending

You will receive a broad overview of federal and state laws that have a day-to-day impact on human resource decisions and actions in the area of employment.  Laws are explained in layman's terms and no prior knowledge of the legal system is necessary. One purpose of this seminar is to help owners, managers, supervisors, and human resource personnel avoid mistakes, and thereby avoid the costly legal arena.
