2021 SBRR Free Workshops

Welcome to the Small Business Requirements & Resources (SBRR) Free Workshop page.

SBRR workshops are provided by members of the Washington state Small Business Liaison Team (SBLT). The workshops were started in 2019 by three Washington state agencies, the departments of Employment Security, Revenue, and Labor & Industries.

Our workshops provide helpful information around the regulatory relationship with government and requirements that business can use to save unwarranted penalties, and teach best practices, bottom line cost-saving programs, business solutions, consulting services, and more.

We want business owners/representatives to be equipped with information to help them make the best decisions for the long-term health, vitality and sustainability of their businesses and employees.
