A regional seminar on Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issues will be held in Weatherford on Wednesday, April 6.

The Oklahoma Small Business Development Center, located at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, in conjunction with the Small Business Administration and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are sponsoring the workshop that will be held from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in Blair Hall at Weatherford City Hall.

Admission is free, but participants are asked to call 580.774.7095 so adequate materials are available.

Doug Misak of the OSBDC said the seminar represents a unique opportunity for businesses and individuals to receive a complete overview of the services and responsibilities of the EEOC.

The speakers for the workshop will be Mike Fetzer, district director for the U.S. EEOC Dallas District Office; Janet Elizondo, deputy director of the Dallas District; and Donald Stevens, director for the Oklahoma Area Office of the EEOC.

Fetzer will speak on the topic of harassment in the workplace, Elizondo will speak on alternative dispute resolution programs, and Stevens will address charge processing within the Oklahoma Area Office. Also speaking will be an EEOC attorney discussing the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The seminar is one of only two being held in the state of Oklahoma as part of a small business initiative of the EEOC.
