Prince Lobel Employment Group Breakfast Seminar – Meet the Commission: A Conversation With the MCAD

June 21, 2011

Please join Prince Lobel for an exciting and informative breakfast seminar featuring the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD). Are there questions that you have about discrimination, retaliation or the MCAD but have not had the opportunity to ask? Now’s your chance! We will hear from two commissioners, including the newest chair of the Commission, as well as an experienced hearing officer. Our moderated discussion will touch on best practices for avoiding discrimination claims, the MCAD’s inner workings, and on hot new topics in this ever-changing area, such as

  • Expansion of the anti-retaliation provision to include former employees
  • Limits on acquiring and using criminal background information
  • How the MCAD determines emotional distress damages and when it imposes civil penalties
  • The use of alternative dispute resolution techniques and how they are viewed by the MCAD
  • When human resource directors and supervisors can be individually liable
  • Common mistakes employers make and how to avoid them

Don’t miss this special opportunity to get up close and personal with the Commission and have your questions answered.
