Event Materials

In January we surveyed developments in Maine, New England, and around the US to get you up to speed on what happened in 2015. Hot topics included:

  • Whistleblowing – are recent decisions by the First Circuit and the Law Court suggesting diverging views on what is and is not protected?
  • Bullying – is there a groundswell for legislation protecting employees?
  • Sexual orientation v. religious freedom – employers’ sometimes conflicting duties
  • Reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers
  • The use of third party vendors to conduct medical examinations
  • The reasonable accommodation process, which continues to drive a significant amount of employment litigation  

Guests joined Jim Erwin and Katy Rand for a fast paced look at some of the most noteworthy developments in 2015.
