Last month, on January 31, Verrill Dana hosted its 2019 Annual Employment Law Update at the Westin Portland Harborview Hotel. The full-day conference provided employers and HR professionals with updates on recent legal developments in labor and employment law. Special guest speakers from Live + Work in Maine, Bath Iron Works, University of Maine at Augusta, and Southern Maine Community College joined us to give their perspectives on the industry.
The sold-out event drew in a record number of more than 160 attendees. Not only did attendees gain knowledge in a variety of labor and employment and employee benefit areas, but stayed engaged with a light “game-show” throughout the event during which participants had the chance to win a prize.
During lunch, labor and employment attorney Tawny Alvarez recorded a podcast that not only dives into important topics covered during the Annual Update, but also features live interviews with attendees from Career Management Associates, AAA, and Varney & Co. Benefits Advisors, who discussed the issues their companies face in the ever changing legal landscape. Listen to our live podcast below or on SoundCloud, iTunes, or GooglePlay.
