Growing Your Farm & Food Business: Labor Law for Locals

Posted on: July 6th, 2017

One of the best ways to protect a business is to know the law as it relates to workplace discrimination, wages and overtime, employment contracts, employee handbooks, and sound human resources policies.

The public can hear directly from the US Department of Labor at a New York State Labor Laws and Regulations workshop on Wednesday, July 12 from 10 a.m. to noon. Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) is hosting this class at its Extension Education Center on Ferndale Loomis Road in Liberty.

Kristyna Lamphere, investigator with the US Department of Labor, will discuss how farmers and local entrepreneurs can stay up-to-date and compliant with the latest developments in labor and employment law training.

Cost is $15 per person or $10 per CCESC enrollee. Anyone can enroll in CCESC for an annual contribution of $25. Space is limited and registration with non-refundable payment is required in advance. Partial scholarships are available with support from Sullivan Renaissance.

Registration can be completed by calling CCESC at 845-292-6180, emailing sullivan@cornell.edu, or visiting www.sullivancce.org. Payment can be made in advance by check, cash, or credit. Additional donations for CCESC programs are appreciated.
