Consumer Education Events

Helping to protect consumers, economically, is part of L&I’s mission. One way we do this, is by having L&I staff at various public functions providing consumer education materials, and tools to check out construction contractors. The following list shows the dates and locations L&I staff will be providing information and assistance.

Find out how to protect yourself when working with a contractor:

Attend a free webinar, Protect Your Home: What to know before hiring a contractor, to learn how to verify a potential contractor, plumber, or electricians license, understand the required notice to customers and lien releases and get resources and tools to help you hire smart.

Check-out the L&I Workshops & Training Center web page, to find the dates and times, and sign-up for scheduled webinars.
