AUSTIN ⎯ The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is inviting San Marcos-area business owners and managers to the Texas Business Conference (TBC) on Friday, August 12 at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos. The conference will provide valuable information for San Marcos employers and business owners concerning the legal issues of operating a business in Texas.

“The conference will help employers recognize how laws affect them and their workforce,” said TWC Chairman and Commissioner Representing Employers Tom Pauken. “Tools presented at the event will give employers the information they need to operate businesses effectively. Texas is a great place to do business, and we need to do our part at TWC to encourage job creation and economic growth in the private sector, while helping our employers address the regulatory challenges of employment law.”

Chairman Pauken and his staff will present practical, up-to-date information for operating a successful business and managing employees. Seminar topics will include: Texas employment law and the basics of hiring, employee policy handbooks, creating your human resources roadmap, handling unemployment claims, independent contractors, and federal and Texas wage and hour laws.

Participants will receive the latest edition of the popular publication Especially for Texas Employers and the accompanying CD, which addresses basic legal issues regarding hiring, post-employment and work-separation policy. Certified public accountants who attend can earn six hours of continuing education credit. Other conference participants may qualify for general professional credit.

The conference is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Veramendi Ballroom F-J, 1001 E. McCarty Lane in San Marcos.
