This training is part of a series that the AG’s Community Engagement Division is hosting on fundamental consumer protection issues with a specific focus on seasonal topics.

The AG’s Community Engagement Division will hold another training session in February on Lemon Laws. This past November, the division held a training on utility rights, home repair scams and landlord-tenant rights , and one on consumer and retail rights in December. Both trainings were held in Springfield.

Launched in May 2015, the Community Engagement Division brings the work and resources of the AG’s Office into communities across the state at times that are convenient for working people and their families.  The training in Worcester is open to the public and is being offered free of charge.
