Chamber to hold workshop

Posted: Friday, March 1, 2013

Do you know what to do to win an unemployment hearing? Respond to requests for time off work? Properly document and handle complains of harassment? What does the law say about garnishments? Is everyone covered under FMLA? Come and find out the answers to these and other important challenges facing businesses today.

The Chamber of Commerce will host Alan Siepker of HR Ideas Unlimited, in a fast-paced, Human Resource Q&A session covering: FMLA, discipline, termination, ADA, discrimination, FLSA, worker’s compensation, EEO, unemployment, privacy and a host of common employment and labor relation issues. Participants will discuss real-life situations and will decide the course of action to take by “you making the call.” Find out what “really happened,” do’s and don’ts, and what the law and courts say to do, while learning the specific action steps to take to protect your organization and win.

This course is designed to educate, strengthen and build confidence in business owners, managers, supervisors, human resource professionals and those who are responsible to navigate the complex world of hiring, firing and maintaining positive employee relations. Preparation, planning and purpose are the keys to controlling those factors which have the potential to negatively impact your business. Bring your toughest, real-life example to this workshop for discussion. Using first-hand observations, your facilitator will help you to better understand how to anticipate employee responses, set controls and consequences and choose the proper course of action to get the results you expect and how to prevent recurrence.

The seminar will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at Victory Noll Center. Cost is $50 per person. The event will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude around 11 a.m. A continental breakfast will be available for all attendees. If you or your employees would like to attend this valuable seminar, please RSVP to or call the office at (260) 356-5300. Please make all checks payable to the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce and mail to 305 Warren Street, Huntington, IN 46750.
