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.
