ARLINGTON, Va. - In response to requests from members, the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), has scheduled a special two-day workshop on employment law for contractors.

"From Hire to Retire: A Contractor's Guide to Labor and Employment Law" will be held Feb. 3-4 at the New Orleans Marriott in Louisiana.

The course is designed to provide contractors and their management staff with an in-depth, but easy-to-understand, review of the proper way to manage employees from recruitment to retirement (or, if necessary, termination). Among the topics to be covered at the workshop are "Finding the Right Candidate: Advertising, Interviewing, and Hiring," "Your Company's Policy Manual: Why You Need One and What It Should Say," and "Safety at the Workplace: OSHA Compliance."

"ACCA gets questions from members every day related to employment law, and we provide many of these answers in the LegalTools section of our Web site," said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO.

"However, this special workshop was designed to provide contractors with even more in-depth information about this critical topic."
