  • Employment Laws Apply to You, Too. | 8:00am - 10:00am | Business, Chamber, Networking, KOSBE, Kingsport Chamber, Wilson Worley PC, Employment Laws, Human Resources
    Employment Laws Apply to You, Too. - Owners of very small businesses frequently imagine that human resources issues are for big business only. In reality, any number of laws, state and federal, apply to most businesses no matter how small. These include laws governing workplace safety, wages and hours, and workers compensation. Moreover, a business doesn't have to get very big before a number of other laws, including the Tennessee Human Rights Act, come into play. Finally, a growing business sometimes reaches the applicability of federal employment laws, including the ADA and the FMLA, without realizing these laws now apply. Learn how you can be prepared to protect your business from unwanted and avoidable human resources issues without investing more money than you can afford.

    Speaker(s): Attorneys from Wilson Worley, P.C.

    Co-Sponsor(s): KOSBE, Kingsport Chamber of Commerce, SBDC at ETSU Kingsport Affiliate Office, Wilson Worley, P.C.

    June 23-27
    Noted for her spirited stage presence, comic sensibility and warm, energetic style, Beth Horner is a vivacious talent dedicated to providing an entertaining and empowering experience for her listeners, young and old. Her stories are renowned for their high comedy and stunning drama: from her hysterical, childhood farmyard escapades to eerie folktales of her native Missouri, side-splitting spoofs of romance novels, and hysterical epics of life’s escapades! An NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award recipient, Horner has performed in venues across the U.S. including on Live from National Geographic. She most recently worked with NASA where she collected the stories of scientists behind the Apollo Space Missions. “Horner’s timing and delivery are so moving and funny that her performance is akin to great stand-up comedy.” – Bulletin Storytelling Review
