Staff Writer

Attorney General Mike Hunter and the Office of Civil Rights Enforcement (OCRE) will host a free education and training conference on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, at the OSU-Tulsa Conference Center.

The day-long conference will focus on employment law and offers attorneys, human resource professionals, EEO managers, large and small businesses, union officials and the general public the resources needed to understand the rights related to and the compliance responsibilities of state and federal employment laws.

“This conference is not just for attorneys who work within the confines of employment law,” Attorney General Mike Hunter said. “We hope that our speakers and resources will be helpful for everyone who operates in hiring and employment-related careers.”

Speakers include representatives from the OCRE and Litigation Units, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, private practice attorneys and others.
