ME 2019 EEOC/HR Practices for a Successful Business

February 27th, 2019 at 8:00am CST
Presented by Maine Human Rights Commission and the USEEOC
Hosted by Maine State Chamber of Commerce

For more information and registration information.

As a small business owner and an employer, you may have legal responsibilities under the federal employment anti-discrimination laws enforced by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Maine Human Rights Commission (MHRC). This workshop is designed with the intent to educate small businesses and help owners and managers focus on running a successful business by maintaining a strong EEO policy. Whether you are dealing with a complaint filed with the EEOC/MHRC or a lawsuit filed by the EEOC/MHRC, the results can be a drain to your mental and financial resources. Studies show that complaints of employment discrimination have been known to lead to moral issues at the workplace and negatively impact creativity and productivity. This workshop will cover relevant topics and business owners are encouraged to come with questions about their internal EEO policy, including:

  • History of EEOC and MHRC and Agency Updates;
  • Breaking the Silence on Sexual Harassment; Job Segregation: Race and National Origin Discrimination; Stereotypes Against Muslims; Religious Accommodations; Working with Breast Feeding Mothers; and, Respecting LGBTQ Employees;
  • Leveling the Playing Field & Reasonable Job Accommodations for Employees with a Disability or Religion;
  • Equal Pay for Equal Work;
  • Hiring “Young” and “Recent College Graduates;”
  • Genetic Information and the Application Process;
  • ADR v. Investigation – Achieving a “Win-Win” Situation;
  • Best Practices on How to Work with the EEOC; and,
  • Retaliation:  A Bad Business Practice.
  • Sponsored by Littler Mendelson, P.C., this event is free but registration is required.
