Webinar Description

We all want workers that appreciate the job and support the farm or ranch’s goals, no matter where they’re from. We know that skill can be found within a huge range of backgrounds. But, many farmers don’t realize how the law defines discrimination, and whether their hiring and management practices could hold up to the scrutiny. This is an opportunity. By learning how the law sees discrimination, farmers can avoid legal problems and spot better ways to ensure we are attracting the best workforce possible.

Join us for a webinar that explains the legal mechanics of discrimination under federal law as well as Minnesota and Wisconsin law. We’ll also share lots of practical tips about how to adapt interview and management practices to meet the law’s standards. If you aren’t in Minnesota or Wisconsin, still consider attending- federal law applies to everyone.

This webinar is free for members and non-members alike. Only members will have access to the recorded version for later viewing however.
