HR & Employment Law for Christian Schools Workshop - Friday, April 21
A common challenge for Christian schools is the ability to keep up with all the laws that impact recruiting, interviewing, and hiring employees. Most schools do not have the resources for a Human Resource department to constantly study all the changes federal and state laws that have to do with employment. HR has become a complex issue when dealing with applications, contracts, benefits, and even dismissal if needed. Determining what laws apply can be very challenging for any school leader. This event is designed to help Christian school leaders negotiate the complex process of Human Resources and Employment laws.
This is a six-hour session that includes a CEU for participation.
