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.
