Employee Recruitment Concepts and Laws for Farmers and Landscape Professionals

— Written By

With unemployment rates at an all time low, recruiting employees can be a challenge. This class will share some of the things to avoid.

One of the primary concerns of landscape companies in today’s economy is recruiting and hiring new employees. There are legal challenges that need to be met and concepts to follow. This workshop will address those challenges and provide a combination of lecture, video, and group discussion to look at the issues of legal employee recruitment. We will also look at the pros and cons of hiring various nontraditional employees. The workshop is taught by Cliff Ruth NC State Extension Area Extension Agent and Regional Certification Program Coordinator.
