Morgan, Brown & Joy attorney Maura D. McLaughlin will hold a virtual employment law Q&A for members of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce webinar on May 4, 2021. McLaughlin will discuss employment law issues and best practices brought on by the pandemic including vaccines, leaves of absence and changes in the new federal stimulus bill.
McLaughlin counsels employers throughout the full life cycle of managing employment relationships. She advises clients on important hiring, discipline and termination decisions, and on best practices for performance management and documentation, which allows for successful defense of these decisions. Clients look to McLaughlin’s advice on negotiating reasonable accommodation issues, addressing employee absenteeism and misconduct, and for compliance with wage and hour laws. She also provides practical guidance in connection with the Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and other state and federal leave laws that helps employers manage leaves of absence. She drafts and revises employee handbooks, contracts and policies. As a result of her substantial experience with the Massachusetts Equal Pay Act, clients concerned about pay equity in the workplace choose to work with McLaughlin to design and implement wage assessments tailored to the client’s workforce size and makeup.
