Human Resources 101 (Tuesday, Nov. 20)

Unemployment is at the lowest rate in recent years! Employers are seeing the impact to their businesses. So, how do people attract and retain our most valuable assets (employees)! Beginning pre-hire all the way through to retirement stage an organization must be cognizant of basic employment laws and regulations set forth by federal, state, and local governments – but in reality, not many employers do.

How you follow these regulations and how we treat your employees will allow you to retain intellectual capital within your organization and reduce costs that are associated with undesired turnover. 

The event will begin at 9 am at the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce, discussing essential rules and compliance for the workforce and presenting common pitfalls to avoid.
