The first in a series of trainings being offered will be held on January 18th with the topic of Hiring. Sponsored by Tri-County JSEC (Job Service Employers Committee) and held at the Anaconda Job Service Office from Noon to 1:00 pm. Sessions provided at No Cost to You!

Business Owners, Managers & Supervisors are your first line of defense against employment lawsuits but are they ready: If you or your management isn’t provided essential employment law training, they can become a devastating liability.

This 12 part video-based program contains everything you need to teach them about 12 legal “hotspots” before a problem arises.

Friday January 18th will be the first in the 12 part series and some of the other topics will cover areas such as: firing, discipline, documentation, wage and hour information. Mark your calendars with the following dates: February 1st, February 15th, March 1st, March 15th, April 5th, April 19th, May 3rd, May 17th, June 7th, June 21st, and July 19th for the remainder of the topics.
