Presenters will provide a general overview of each of the topics, provide information to reduce risks, and supply materials to be used as practice tools. This is a must-attend seminar for every municipal manager, mayor, attorney, and human resources professional.
This spring has brought a whirlwind of legislative changes that affect the way public employers do business. Join us to hear from labor law experts about changes to PA 312 binding arbitration, PERA, health care, the Urban Cooperation Act, and more. These changes present a lot of opportunities for local units of government to control costs.
Learn how to navigate these significant changes and make them work in your community on September 22, in Lansing. Registration is open!
