Stories from Anne-Marie Storey

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. Among the more significant HR challenges of 2020 was managing the leave laws affecting your workforce. The FFCRA (paid sick leave) and the emergency expansion of the FMLA were added to the already rich mix of overlapping federal and state laws relating to, or on the periphery of, employee leavesWhether those two laws fade into the background or continue in some manner, there remains the all-encompassing matter of managing your employee leave portfolios against the new workplace realities – where, when, and how your employees work. It’s enough to make HR managers take “leave” of their senses, so we’ve invited Anne-Marie Storey to provide just the prescription 

What’s it all about? 

  • Discover the five most common leave conundrums in Maine, followed by the best compliance tips for their resolution, including any guidance on the follow-up to the two Covid emergency federal leave laws. 
  • Think anew about your overall management of employee leaves and how to create a holistic approach providing the best outcomes for employees and employers alike in the context of the new workplace. 
  • Consider recent trends in leave laws and the likelihood of expanded paid leave requirements in the future.
