PLENARY: Maine Legislative and Workers’ Compensation Board Update

Monday, August 26th, 2019 @ 8:15 am - 9:15 am

What’s it all about? We open the first full day of Comp Summit with a look at the legislative session past and anticipated changes to the Maine Workers’ Compensation Act. Some look to the proposed legislation with hope, others with trepidation. We’ll explore the reality of what happened from three distinct vantage points: John Rohde, Executive Director of the Workers’ Compensation Board; Elizabeth Brogan from the Workers’ Compensation Coordinating Council; and Ben Grant from McTeague Higbee. Plus, we will be inviting key legislators to the table as well. Executive Director Rohde also will tell you a bit about the agenda for the Board meeting to take place later this afternoon, and other matters before the Board.

Special Guests As you know, the Legislature has been called into session on this Monday. Schedules permitting, we will welcome Senator Shenna Bellows and Representative Dick Bradstreet, who played key roles in the recent legislation.

Approved for 1 CCMC, SHRM, HRCI (HR) General, and Maine Attorney CLE Credit.
