Construction in Indian Country - Labor and Employment Issues

Event Description

Online registration is closed. Email Abby Ward at to register.

A contractor embarking on a tribal project needs more than just an enforceable contract. They need to know the rules that govern labor and employment on the project—rules that sometimes differ significantly from those that apply elsewhere. We’ll cover federal labor and employment standards that apply to Indian Country work, the limits of state regulatory jurisdiction, and recent cases.
