NNAHRA and Drummond Woodsum have joined forces once again to provide more of the Tribal Human Resources Professional (THRP) training that HR Professionals have come to benefit from and enjoy.


THRP II is here! This 3.5 day course builds on the concepts covered in THRP I and provides HR Professionals with in depth legal and practical knowledge and skills to help them handle the unique employment challenges facing tribal governments and their enterprises. The topics covered in THRP II include the legal and practical issues related to hiring, onboarding, employee privacy, employee benefits, employment contracts/agreements, and HR ethics, as well as the way in which these issues are affected by sovereignty and sovereign immunity.


This workshop will provide lectures and group exercises to reinforce learning. Its goal is to provide an understanding of many of the underlying laws and practical and concrete solutions to the challenges that HR professionals face daily.
