HR Academy

December 6, 2019 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Knowing about all the different employment laws can be a challenge and understanding them even more difficult. 

It is crucial for the day-to-day management of employees that school district supervisors are familiar with and understand the full range of federal employment laws. To help school districts in that matter, the OSSBA Employment Services team will be offering human resources training for members to help school district supervisors understand the various federal laws and to give them management tools, knowledge and confidence to handle employment matters.

This full-day workshop will cover a variety of essential topics for any school district employee who is responsible for managing or supervising other employees.
