Business as Unusual? Discrimination and Harassment Update Post-Pandemic

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Respect in the Virtual and Hybrid Working Worlds

What’s it all about? How has Covid 19, specifically the exodus and now return to work onsite, impacted employment discrimination and harassment in Maine? And, how have DE&I issues affected those same issues? Human nature may not have changed, but the way we do our work certainly has. To decipher all of this, we’ve invited to the faculty Aria Eee (Executive Director, Board of Overseers of the Bar) and noted employment law defense attorney Peter Lowe (Brann & Isaacson) to discuss developments in this arena with the goal of enhancing a culture of respect, inclusion and diversifying the Maine Bar and workplaces throughout the state. 

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. 

  • Learn about recent trends in employment concerns and discrimination claims in Maine. 
  • Discover some of the best policies and practices in place at workplaces that discourage harassment and encourage respectful, inclusive behavior. 
  • Discuss strategies for addressing return to office, vaccines, face coverings, and other COVID-related issues.   

Approved for recertification credit: Maine attorneys CLE (discrimination and harassment or ethics credit), SHRM, and HRCI ethics credit.
