This is the last course in WSTIP's Supervisor School series. This one day session will equip supervisors with the skills needed to effectively manage personnel while minimizing the legal risk to your agency and/or themselves. The laws relating to public employment have changed dramatically over the last decade and the risks associated with not complying with these laws have increased. This training will draw on real life experiences involving transit agencies from throughout the State of Washington.


This class is specially designed for new public transit supervisors. For experienced supervisors this class can serve as a refresher.


Kristin Anger is currently with Summit Law Group whose practice involves a full range of labor and employment law matters, including counseling employers on compliance with legal obligations, training, drafting policies and agreements, and representing employers in litigation and administrative proceedings. Kristin has represented both public and private sector clients in employment-related litigation in federal and state courts and in administrative and arbitration hearings. Additionally, Kristin provides training to managers and employees on compliance with employment and labor laws, including training on harassment and discrimination, discipline and discharge, and disability accommodation. Kristin regularly speaks to employer groups on a variety of labor and employment topics ranging from leave and accommodation, to conducting workplace investigations, to preparing for grievance arbitration.
