AWB's 2018 employment law webinar series will conclude with session on accident prevention and investigation



Employment law matters to your business. Getting the law right is not an option, but it is also not always easy. Fortunately, AWB is offering a convenient way to get the latest news and best practices on how to comply with increasingly complex employment law.

AWB is wrapping up a six-month webinar series that covers common employment law topics. We have partnered with some of the state's top employment law experts to give you, the employer and human resource professional, the information you need in 2018 and beyond.

Each of the 60-90-minute webinars has ample time for questions.

The final webinar in the series will be on Wednesday, July 11: Accident Prevention and Accident Investigation Plans with Tim O'Connell and Karin Jones of Stoel Rives LLP.

All employers in Washington State are required to create a written Accident Prevention Plan or Program (APP). This webinar will discuss how to comply with regulations, how to write a comprehensive APP, how to conduct and prepare for an accident investigation and provide tools/templates that can be adapted to fit your company’s specific needs. Implementing a comprehensive APP helps ensure increased safety awareness and may lower the number of accidents and/or illnesses.

This webinar series is open to AWB members and non-members. For questions or more information, contact Kelli Schueler, AWB member relations and events coordinator, at 360.943.1600.

* Seattle has tax fatigue

* We need accountability

* We shouldn't take jobs for granted

* Seattle's business community is the envy of the nation

* We need thoughtful regional solutions to homelessness and housing insecurity

Ultimately, it's not just about working together on homelessness, or other pressing issues of the day. It's about our elected leaders leading, seeking common ground, and partnering with both the advocate and business communities...

As part of TVW's obligation to provide you with information about your state government, we have a profound commitment to state election coverage.

In addition to airing candidate forums and debates on TVW's cable television station, all programming is archived and available for your use right here.
