Business conference convenes to discuss San Antonio jobs

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

A new conference is being scheduled this month to discuss San Antonio jobs, among other locations.

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has announced its 2019 Texas Business Conference schedule with 13 locations available throughout the state.

The conferences offer employers and human resource professionals the opportunity to learn about new employment laws, network with peers, talk one-on-one with employment attorneys, and earn education credits.

The first conference will be held in Houston on Jan. 25 at the Hyatt Regency Houston. Additional conferences will be held in Corpus Christi, San Antonio and 10 other locations throughout the state.

TWC invites area employers, human resource professionals, business owners and managers to attend the conferences, which will provide valuable information for employers and business owners concerning the legal issues associated with operating a business in Texas.

“Texas employers are the drivers of our state’s remarkable economy,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs. “The Texas Business Conferences provide employers with the tools they need to navigate state and federal employment laws so that they can continue to move the Texas economy forward.”

Employers receive practical, up-to-date information for operating a successful business and learn techniques to more effectively manage employees. Seminar topics include: Texas employment law and the basics of hiring; federal and Texas wage and hour laws; the unemployment claim and appeal process; independent contractors; and employee policy handbooks. Participants will receive the latest edition of the popular publication, Especially for Texas Employers, which addresses basic legal issues regarding hiring, pay, post-employment and work-separation policies.

The Society for Human Resource Management Texas State Council (Texas SHRM) is co-sponsoring the Texas Business Conferences and offering professional development and Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) recertification credits for human resources professionals attending the conferences. Certificates for the Texas SHRM Professional Development Credits will be handed out to those attending the Texas Business Conference. Also, attorneys may receive up to six hours of Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit (no ethics hours) if they attend the entire conference. In addition, certified public accountants who attend can earn six hours of continuing education credit, and other conference participants may qualify for general professional credit.
