Editor's Note: We occasionally run a notice about "Headhunters" in the maritime industry and the practice of charging mariners for arranging jobs. Unique to the maritime industry, the placement firm that charges the mariner for placement services by requiring a contract for a percentage of wages before placement commits a tort for which the mariner may recover money. We will be running the post on avoiding such headhunter practices today even while we draw your attention to the advertisement below. We regard WorkBoat as a highly reliable news source and information vendor. We think if anyone could put together a seminar that could guide you through the rocks and shoals of the crew hiring shallows it would be WorkBoat. But we do not review the seminar offerings of vendors we know to be reliable, so we can't vouch for the accuracy of the information. We don't charge for carrying this type of advertising. We regard the seminars of those we judge through years of observation as reliable vendors to be important sources of English language nautical information and we simply bring your attention to the availability of instruction of interest. Just as we want to provide seamen with the information for avoiding and recovering damages from wrongful headhunter practices. We want to provide management with the information to avoid litigation in the first place. You would expect nothing less from a library.
