2021 Employment Law Annual Update Series

January 21, 2021 at 9:30am2:00pm
Virtual Series

Join us as we kick off the new year with virtual events on the third Thursday of each month.

Remember that fun-filled, day long seminar where participants have the opportunity to engage with like-minded HR professionals, catch up on the most up-to-date happenings in the the labor and employment legal landscape, and generally listen to a group of attorneys laugh at their own jokes? 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.

Maine Update: 9:30AM - 10:30AM
Massachusetts Update: 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Connecticut Update: 1:00PM - 2:00PM

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

Stay tuned for details on the rest of the series!
