Rebecca Webber to Present on Key Employee Issues Facing Small Businesses

AUBURN, Maine – Skelton Taintor & Abbott shareholder Rebecca S. Webber will be the featured presenter at a breakfast workshop on April 25 held by the Oxford Hills Chamber and the Central Maine Human Resources Association (CMHRA). She will address employee issues often faced by small businesses.

Most small businesses and non-profit organizations do not have a human resources professional on staff, but must still be in compliance on requirements. Webber will identify issues that can arise for employers and discuss how to reduce the risk of claims, Commission actions and court cases. The discussion will include advice on policies and procedures as well as pitfalls to avoid.

Webber’s practice areas include employment litigation, civil rights litigation, employment law, counseling and compliance and employment law training. A sought-after presenter at seminars and conferences on subjects related to employment law, Webber has earned the preeminent AV-rating from Martindale-Hubbell® and has repeatedly been named to the Best Lawyers in America® list.

She represents individuals as well as business and municipal clients in the full range of employment law matters they encounter, such as: retaliation, whistleblower claims, discrimination and civil rights, sexual harassment, Maine Human Rights Act, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), age discrimination in Employment (ADEA), USERRA, policies, employee handbooks, severance agreements and employment contracts.

The event will take place at the Oxford Casino Hotel from 7:30 am to 9 am and is open to the public. The cost to attend is $15 for Chamber and CMHRA members and $25 for non-members, and includes a buffet breakfast and the workshop.
