On Thursday June 6, small business owners will have an opportunity to discuss issues regarding Federal regulatory compliance and enforcement. SBA Acting National Ombudsman Yolanda V. Swift will meet with members of the Seattle-area small business community to hear issues and comments about Federal regulatory enforcement and compliance actions. Small business owners, representatives of trade associations, and community and business leaders are invited to participate, comment about compliance actions and enforcement of regulations by Federal agencies, and learn more about the impact of Federal regulations on small businesses.
This Seattle Hearing will be your opportunity to testify/discuss issues regarding Federal regulatory compliance and enforcement and how you have been affected as a small business owner. The SBA’s Office of the Ombudsman’s mission is to assist small businesses when they experience excessive or unfair federal regulatory enforcement actions, such as repetitive audits or investigations, excessive fines, penalties, threats, retaliation or other unfair enforcement action by a federal agency.
The event will take place on Thursday, June 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Rainier Club (820 4th Avenue, Seattle). To RSVP, contact Jose.Mendez@Seattle.gov.
The SBA’s Office of the Ombudsman also allows you to fill out a comment form on your experience working with Federal regulations. The comment form can be found here.
