Practical Patenting for Technology Startups

October 25, 2017
Verrill Dana LLP

One Portland Square Portland, Maine 04101

Navigating the FMLA is difficult, there's no question about that—but with an acute sense of where major pitfalls often hide, you are in a better position to navigate the difficulties that most often accompany sticky FMLA issues.

This seminar will provide all skill levels with the tools they need to appropriately respond to and track FMLA leave. Panel discussions of real-life scenarios will provide attendees with skills as to navigating intermittent leave requests and unresponsive doctors with an ever-present discussion of what these scenarios would look like in litigation.

Featured Speakers

  • Tawny Alvarez
  • Joanna Bowers
  • Rob Brooks
  • Doug Currier
