Providing services to the public requires that government entities take on and manage a number of risks. This workshop provides attendees the information they need to help develop best practices and policies to improve their risk management efforts. Everyone leaves with information and examples to implement immediately!

Session Topics

Red Flags in Contracts: Coverage, Exclusions and Risk Management—MCIT members enter into a variety of contracts and legal agreements. This session addresses insurance limits, additional insured wording, certificates of insurance, hold harmless and indemnification language, and other potential risk management red flags in contracts and agreements.

A Discussion of the Open Meeting Law—Elected officials are legally required to conduct business in a public forum. A violation of the Open Meeting Law can affect the credibility of the organization and its leaders, as well as expose them to litigation, fines and penalties. Session highlights:

  • what constitutes a meeting
  • when the governing body can legally close a meeting
  • how to properly notice, close and record meetings
  • penalties that can accompany violations of the Open Meeting Law
  • how MCIT coverage responds to claims that allege a violation of the Open Meeting Law

Employee Leaves: Sorting out Who Has Leave and When—State and federal laws provide employees with statutory leaves. The goal of this session is to provide supervisors with enough information to understand the basic leaves so that they can identify when certain leaves may be appropriate and when to involve others, such as human resources. This session is not intended for the experienced human resources professional.

Cultural Change and Accountability: Addressing Sexual Harassment—Sexual harassment is prevalent in the headlines. This session covers what sexual harassment is and what supervisors and staff can do to create a workplace culture of respect and accountability.
