Join Us for the Return of Preti Flaherty's Annual Employment Law Summit!

After two years away due to the pandemic, we've been thinking a lot about how office environments have changed during that time and how employers should update their practices to keep pace with those changes. We're excited to bring you a full day of programming, including sessions on retaliation claims, legislative updates, unionization issues, immigration, hiring issues, and more! 

Topics Include:

  • The Post Pandemic Workplace
  • A Legislative Update for HR Professionals
  • The Post-COVID World of Maine Workers' Compensation
  • Fear and Loathing: How to Respond to Union Organizing
  • Immigration Options for Employers
  • Steering Clear of Retaliation Claims
  • A Legal Update for Public Employers
  • Training Managers to be Better Interviewers

Cost: $165/attendee

Approved for 5.5 HRCI recertification credits and 5.5 Maine CLE credits.
