Employers are encouraged to attend in-person if a meeting is offered in your area and virtually, if a close in-person meeting is not an option. The Texas Conference for Employers continues to offer Texas employers the opportunity to garner nuts and bolts information about state and federal employment law matters and how to deal with unemployment claims and the appeal process.
