The Roane Chamber of Commerce is providing a special half-day seminar, “Stay out of court: Human Resource Legal Matters Update,” on Tuesday, May 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Roane State Community College.
This is the third year the chamber has teamed with the attorneys at the Wimberly-Lawson law firm to provide this critical human resource learning opportunity for Roane County area businesses.
The seminar will include lunch and provide 4.0 Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) credits to qualified attendees towards PHR, SPHR, and GPHR recertification. The seminar will also earn Continuing Education Units (CEU) from Roane State Community College. CEUs are important to many individuals to keep their membership or certification current within their profession. Additionally, for someone wanting to earn a degree or certificate, a review of their CEU’s can be evaluated by Roane State Community College to determine if the CEU’s meet the criteria for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA).
The topics covered during the seminar include:
- General liability matters from the HR and management perspective
- Major reforms to the Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Act
- Workplace bullying
- Supervisors as a front line of defense (covers things such as the ADA, accommodation, FLSA, etc.)
- Health care reform
- Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
The cost for the seminar is $90 per attendee. However, there is a discounted price of $75 for members of the Roane County Chamber of Commerce and the Roane County Employers’ Association.
The seminar will be held in the Dunbar Building, ground level in the Raider Room, at Roane State Community College, 276 Patton Lane, Harriman, TN 37748.
