Texas Workforce Commission
AUSTIN — The dynamics of today’s fast-paced, ever-changing economy can sometimes make it a challenge for employers to keep up with laws affecting their businesses and workers. That’s why the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is inviting Lubbock-area business owners and managers to the Texas Business Conference (TBC) on Friday, August 10.
“The conference is a great way for Texas employers to familiarize themselves with laws affecting them and their workers,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ron Lehman. “The event provides employers useful information so they can benefit from healthy business operations.”
Employers will learn how to avoid costly pitfalls when operating a business and learn techniques to more effectively manage employees. Commissioner Lehman and his staff will present practical, up-to-date information and high-tech tools for finding workers.
Agency attorneys and staff will discuss employee handbooks, hiring and retention, firing, workplace investigations, Unemployment Insurance (UI), UI tax credits, wage and hour laws, workers’ compensation and more. Participants will receive an invaluable TBC handbook, including the latest edition of the popular publication Especially for Texas Employers, which addresses basic legal issues in hiring, post-employment problems and work separation policy. The conference offers six hours of continuing education for participating certified public accountants and other general professional credit.
The TBC will be held at Holiday Inn Hotel & Towers, 801 Avenue Q, in Lubbock. Registration is from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. The conference is from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Registration is $85 per person and is nonrefundable.
