State Chamber Offers Workplace Program through Compliance Co


The State Chamber on Wednesday announced an alliance designed to provide member businesses access to expert analysis on complex employment regulation and compliance issues.

The alliance is with The Compliance Co., an Oklahoma City-based employment management and consulting firm.

"This partnership will enable us to provide a high level of information to our members statewide on critical workplace and work force issues," said Richard P. Rush, president of the State chamber. "These issues, if not properly managed, could have large implications for their businesses."

The Compliance Co. provides a variety of employment programs and services aimed at making certain businesses are in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations, said Kathy Teel, founder and president.

"This affiliation exemplifies the type of partnerships we forge at TCC to help business organizations like the State Chamber provide its members with insight to help them operate profitable businesses," she said.

As part of the new partnership, TCC will conduct seminars on behalf of the State Chamber, presenting several topics including federal contract rules, discrimination, harassment, immigration, compensation and ergonomics.
