HR Certification Iinstitute Eduction Series – Free with R.S.V.P.

This education event will focus on the revised Section 503 Regulations which aim to positively effect employment statistics for people with disabilities by requiring employers who are federal contractors or subcontractors to set affirmative action goals and to report progress toward meeting those goals. The new rules strengthen the enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act and put into place new employer requirements around recruiting, hiring, and accommodating individuals with disabilities. Our speakers – Tarak "TK" Shah from the OFCCP and Arissa Meyer, Associate with Haynes Boone – will discuss this topic and provide meaningful updates for employers.

This session is worth 2 hours of SPHR/PHR CEU Credits. 

You must R.S.V.P. to this event by 12 p.m. on Friday, October 23.
