Maine HR Convention: May 10, 12, & 14, 2021 – Virtual+ Edition


Workshop A: 2020 Employment Law Year-in-Review

Wednesday, May 13th, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Latest from Maine and Washington to Your Desk

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 and team return for what should be another bravura rendition of what the Courts, Congress, the Maine Legislature, and regulatory authorities have done that impacts your work in human resources. More important, they will look to trends that will help you keep these changes in perspective, and they will challenge you with a series of hypothetical situations that are closing in on your doorstep.

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 a range of societal issues are playing out at work.
  • Study how the current economy and talent pool challenge your thinking on wages, benefits, and leave time.
