FMLA, Disability, & Sick Leave Management: A Panel Discussion

Join the Maine Employee Benefits Council (MEBC) on Wednesday, October 17 for a panel discussion on the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), disability, and sick leave management. Panelists will discuss federal and state specific paid leave laws, examine the requirements for Maine employers who have employees in the particular states, best practices for managing leave, and options for using a third-party administrator for leave management. During the seminar, Verrill Dana attorney Doug Currier, Chair of the firm's Labor & Employment Group, will review the legal aspects of leave alongside a panel of representatives from the U.S. Department of Labor, third-party leave administrators, HR managers, and a fellow employment lawyer.

The two-hour seminar, organized in part by Verrill Dana employee benefits and executive compensation attorney and MEBC Vice President Ken Ginder, will take place at 8:00am at Verrill Dana's Portland office. Breakfast will be served during the event and continuing education credits will be provided for HR and legal professionals from HRCI, SHRM and the Maine Board of Bar Overseers.
