Senate sponsors small business training

Small business owners throughout Colorado will have access to both human resource professionals and employment attorneys at the first small business training seminar in Denver on Dec. 14.

Sponsored by Sen. Linda Newell, a Democrat from Littleton, the seminar covers human resource and labor practices, said Senate spokesman Jack Wylie.

“So often, they don’t stay on top of employment laws, or they don’t have the resources to do so,” he said. “Sen. Newell is putting this seminar together to help business owners avoid lawsuits.”

The training is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mountain States Employers Council, 1799 Pennsylvania St. in Denver.

Each session is designed to address civil rights and discrimination in business practices – and by keeping employers up to date on state and federal laws, Newell hopes to minimize the number of lawsuits in the court – and keep businesses operating.

For more information or to reserve a spot at the seminar, call (303) 866-4846.
