Georgia Labor Commissioner Mark Butler will visit Augusta next week to provide local business owners and human resource professionals an update on the state workforce and changes in employment law.
As the keynote speaker at Thursday’s East Central Georgia Business and Employer Summit at Augusta Technical College, Butler is expected to focus on steps to create jobs, eliminate fraud and improve workforce development and efficiency.
Joining Butler will be Cherry Rizer, an employment and training consultant at the Department of Labor; J. Edward Enoch Jr., an Augusta lawyer who specializes in business law; and Don Betts, a certified economic developer from Georgia Tech.
The all-day conference, held by the Georgia Department of Labor and the State Employer Committee, aims to “offer a crash course for forward-thinking” supervisors, managers, human resource professionals and business owners looking for ways to conquer compliance challenges.
Seating is limited for the workshop, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the 600 Building auditorium at Augusta Technical College, 3200 Tech Drive.
The cost for the event, which includes a light breakfast and lunch, is $60 ($75 at the door) and $50 for additional participants per company. Participants can receive recertification credits for taking the program.
