A new University of Minnesota Extension program offering farm families strategies and practical information on regulatory and management aspects associated with a hired workforce will be available in June in Rochester, Minn., and St. Cloud, Minn.

"Employment Skills for Today--Planning for Success" is a full-day workshop designed to help participants deepen their knowledge of legal and tax issues related to labor workforce management, including:

  • tasks employers must do to properly document workers; 
  • the newly revised Form I-9;
  • the hiring process and employee compensation;
  • cultural diversity; and
  • maintaining effective communications with employees.

The programs are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. They're offered:

  • June 17, Room HA112, University Center Rochester, 1926 College View Road SE, Rochester; and
  • June 21, St. Cloud Technical & Community College, 1540 Northway Drive, St. Cloud

The workshops are free, but space is limited. Lunch is included. To register, please call contact Bobbi Ruesch at 507-337-2801 or email her at bmruesch@umn.edu.
