Best Practices in Hiring and Firing Employees
Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM MST
FREE for ACS members
For any business, seeking answers to HR questions can seem daunting. We have heard from our members that this information is vital to their business operations, and in response to this, we’re pleased to announce the next free ACS member webinar: Best Practices in Hiring and Firing Employees.
When applying for jobs, applicants are covered by a variety of federal and state laws, including Title VII (discrimination), the ADA (disability), and the ADEA (age), among many others. Prospective applicants may bring failure-to-hire claims based on race, age, disability, gender, and others as well. In addition, most states have their own anti-discrimination and other laws that concern hiring. Similarly, terminating employees can also be risky, with numerous issues to consider.
In this session, renowned labor and employment lawyer Rick Alaniz will cover the key recommendations for hiring and firing employees.
The American Marketing Association describes marketing as “… the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large.” For artisan cheesemakers, this boils down to a basic strategy for getting cheese in people’s mouths. Jasper Hill’s Zoe Brickley explores the typical supply chain pathways, and the opportunities and challenges of different approaches to navigating them. She’ll also talk margins, promotions, staffing and budgets, distributors, wholesalers, and direct to consumer outlets. Get the link (and member password) to watch the recording!
