Women Business Owners of Denton County will hold its monthly luncheon on Tuesday, April 7th, at Oakmont Country Club, Corinth, Texas. “Do You Know Who is Knocking at Your Door?” will be the topic of guest speaker Lucia Bone, founder of The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E., which promotes Consumer Awareness of Unsafe Service Employment.
Lucia speaks nationally to educate consumers and employers on the dangers of not knowing who you hire and the importance of proper criminal background checks. She will share the story of her sister’s brutal rape and murder by a twice-convicted sex offender hired to do service work in her home, and give us information about how to protect ourselves and our businesses, what is proper background screening, and what consumers expect.
She says, “Just because you trust the company you hire, it doesn’t mean the employees they send into your home are not convicted felons. Bonded and insured doesn’t mean a criminal background check has been performed on the worker. Many major corporations use subcontractors. You may not be hiring who you think you are hiring.”
Registration and networking begins at 11:30, with a luncheon and speaker to follow, 12 noon-1:00 p.m. Register online at www.wbodc.org or send an e-mail to email@example.com by Thursday, April 2, 2009. With timely reservations, the luncheon and program cost is $15 for WBODC members and $20 for guests. After April 2nd, the cost is $20 for WBODC members and $25 for guests.
