February 18, 2021 at 9:30am10:30am
Virtual Series

Join us for the second part of our 2021 Employment Law Annual Update! The virtual series will continue through the year on the third Thursday of each month.

This year, we are taking every precaution to make sure our clients and our community stay safe during the pandemic and, as a result, we are making our usual one-day conference into a virtual series spread out over 2021. Participants will be provided with the information they need to navigate the ever-changing labor and employment landscape, as well as CLE and SHRM credits to meet any licensing requirements that participants may have.

Part 2: The Gig Economy – Independent Contractor or Employee and Why it Matters

Join Tawny Alvarez and Emily Coombs as they discuss misclassification issues experienced by employers in determining whether to classify a worker as an independent contractor or employee. This program will discuss recent federal DOL activities related to Independent Contractor classification standards, as well as Massachusetts, Maine, and Connecticut’s independent standards and how they inter-relate with other corporate obligations companies have to their workforce.

Webinars are 60 minutes each and provide 1 Maine CLE and 1 SHRM credits.
