Local employers and business owners got some helpful legal advice about running their businesses Friday.

The Texas Business Conference was hosted by Texas Workforce Commission Commissioner Hope Andrade.

Tommy Simmons, the legal council for Commissioner Andrade's office, said employers were given the ins and outs of operating a business and managing employees.

"Sometimes issues come up that are really confusing," Simmons said, "really difficult for employers. The laws are extremely complex and that's why we try to give as much straight information as possible and no question is out of bounds for a conference like this."

More than 300 employers, business owners, business analyst and lawyers attended the one-day conference.

The TWC is stealing peoples money and shutting down small business's. I have been fighting the TWC for more than three years. They have lied to cover up mistakes and have taken money out of my bank account on one occasion and they are currently trying to do it again. I have all the proof I need to show that the TWC will lie and cheat hard working honest people out of their money. They have even gone as far as to run me out of business. Someone needs to hear my story and find out what the TWC is really about.

The Texas Workforce Commission destroys small business's. All it takes is for a disgruntled worker to fill out their single form and file it. The TWC doesn't make the worker prove any part o their complaint. Instead, the business owner is made to jump trough hoops for months and even years (as in my case)to prove their claim as false. Even then you will loose at the end of all that. The TWC is the greatest example of a government agency that cares nothing about the truth and will use all its power to take money out of your pocket. They redefine their own rules to fit the case they bring against you. They will lie and bully you around every turn. The people of this great state need to be aware of their tactics and the huge injustice they perform on unsuspecting small business's. In short, we the people should demand a total dismemberment of this illegal organization and it's works. They do nothing for the economy of this state and are just another drain on our tax paying dollars.
