2019 Employment Law Year-in-Review: The Latest from Maine and Washington

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

What’s it all about? Our audience of experienced HR professionals can never get enough information about legal compliance. It’s the heart of maintaining strong employee relations and keeping your organization’s focus on where it should be – your people, products, and services. Dan Rose, Laurel McClead, and Michael Buescher report what the Courts, Congress, the Maine Legislature, and regulatory authorities have done that impacts your work in human resources. More importantly, he’ll look to trends that will help you keep these changes in perspective, and he will devote significant time for audience questions about the range of issues you face on the employment law front.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Build your toolkit for thinking like a lawyer, spotting issues proactively, and encouraging workplace policies that avoid employment law issues in the first instance.
  • Consider how some of these trends impact your work in human resources: shifting patterns in government enforcement, shifting patterns in the kinds of litigation being brought, and how #MeToo and other societal issues are playing out at work.
  • Study how talent shortages put pressure on the way you consider family leave issues, disabilities, and wage and hour laws.
