Conferences spotlight San Antonio human resource jobs

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

A number of conferences that will be in new in 2018 are spotlighting San Antonio jobs, among other locations.

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has announced its 2018 Texas Business Conference schedule with 16 locations available throughout the state.

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

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.

“We are committed to providing employers with the information they need to succeed,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs. “Our new season of Texas Business Conferences brings valuable resources to help employers effectively navigate through state and federal employment laws.”

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.
