Registration now open for 2017 Employment Law webinar series

The best way to protect your company -- and your employees -- in the ever-changing world of employment law is to be up-to-date on the latest practices and standards. AWB is offering an in-depth look at workplace law with top legal experts who are well-versed in Washington's employment standards. The six-session Employment Law webinar series begins Jan. 11 and continues through June. The attorneys giving the classes will discuss hiring, termination, non-competes, accident investigations, wage & hour, insurance, benefits, job descriptions and much more.

CLE requests have been submitted and are being processed.

In a special bonus, AWB is offering a discounted early-bird package that covers all six sessions and includes a number of extras: a bind for topic materials (mailed ahead of time), along with a wrap-up thumb drive with all webinar materials, plus two years of annual updates on all topics covered.

The early-bird special is only available until Jan. 6. At that point, only single webinars will be available for purchase.

The first session on Jan. 11 will cover pre-hire, hiring and job descriptions. It will be led by Clemencia Castro-Woolery of Ledger Square Law, P.S.

Both counties enjoy the state's lowest unemployment rates as of October: 4 percent in Snohomish County and 3.7 percent in King. Counties in southwest Washington, however, continue to lag with unemployment rates of 6 percent in Clark, 7.2 percent in Cowlitz, 7.6 percent in Lewis and 8.6 percent in Wahkiakum County.
