Pauken Announces ‘Take Charge of Business’ Conference in San Angelo


Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – The dynamics of today’s fast-paced, challenging economy can make it difficult for employers to keep up with laws affecting their businesses and workers. To address that, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is inviting San Angelo-area business owners and managers to the Texas Business Conference (TBC) on Friday, August 13.

“The conference helps employers recognize how laws affect them and their workforce,” said TWC Chairman and Commissioner Representing Employers Tom Pauken.

“Tools presented at the event will give employers the information they need to operate a business effectively. Texas is a great place to do business, and we need to do our part at TWC to encourage job creation and economic growth in the private sector, while helping our employers address the regulatory challenges of employment law.”

Chairman Pauken and his staff will present practical, up-to-date information and tips to avoid costly pitfalls when operating a business and managing employees. Agency attorneys and staff will discuss:

  • employee handbooks
  • hiring and retention
  • firing
  • workplace investigations
  • Unemployment Insurance (UI)
  • preparing for UI hearings
  • wage and hour laws
  • workers’ compensation
  • and more.

Participants will receive the latest edition of the popular publication Especially for Texas Employers, which addresses basic legal issues regarding hiring and post-employment and work-separation policy. Certified public accountants who attend can earn six hours of continuing education credit. Other conference participants may qualify for general professional credit.

The conference is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at McNease Convention Center, Main Ballroom,

500 Rio Concho Drive in San Angelo. Registration is from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.

Registration is $85 per person and is nonrefundable. Registration forms can be downloaded at www.texasworkforce.org/twcinfo/tbcforms/tbcform.html, then mailed with the fee payable to:

Texas Business Conference — TWC, Texas Workforce Commission, 101 E. 15th St., Room 218, Austin, TX 78778. Space is limited, so participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible.

Federal regulations made business a nightmare 20 years ago. Now, I note apparent new rules to govern hiring and firing. In a free society, a business is free to hire and fire as it chooses. The soothing story that will be recited is that “these rules are to *help*.” Nonsense. They’ll be ever more restrictive.

This issue is just a tiny part of the ills that beset us. We’re plunging ever faster down the rat hole without the apparent sense to see it.
