Maine HR Convention: May 10 – 12, 2022


Workshop B: The Employment Law Landscape in Maine

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

What it means for compliance and your values.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. The dam burst in 2020. Covid-19 and its aftermath have raised your employment law compliance practices to front and center status. Everything from reasonable accommodations and leave requests to vaccine and safety protocols and how you manage the wages and hours of your employees is on the table. We’ve assembled one of our favorite legal teams to reference some of those critical Federal and Maine developments from the year past. Dan RoseKathleen Wade, and Elek Miller will also share a holistic approach to legal compliance, fairness, and consistency that will help you match your compliance protocols to your values and just how you want to be seen as an employer.

What’s it all about? 

  • Measure the impact of societal trends on the workplace and the more strategic role HR can play in assessing your risk management practices. 
  • Explore the concepts of fairness and consistency in your approach to employment law situations and how this aligns with the values you express as an organization. Take a close look at how fairness and consistency relate to the words in your employee handbooks, your training/development initiatives, and your management practices. 
  • Learn how to take charge of these efforts in the boardroom with your executive team and by modeling behaviors in the trenches for your frontline managers.
