Make Employment Law Work for Your Farm

Free online webinar 

Monday, March 28, 2016
3 p.m.


Employment law can be incredibly complex, and especially so for the diversified farm. Employment laws also can vary greatly by state. This Ohio-focused tutorial will break down employment law concerns such as minimum wage, workers’ compensation and overtime, independent contractors, and more. This tutorial can still be helpful for learning the framework of employment law and the federal regulations that apply, even if you do not operate within Ohio.
