With particular attention to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), our panel will explore the lasting impacts of the pandemic on the practice of employment law in the commonwealth. 

Deirdre Hosler, general counsel of the MCAD, and representatives of both the management-side and employee-side bars will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on MCAD claims, the pandemic's impact on alternative dispute resolution, the commission’s input on religious accommodations in light of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's recent updates to its FAQs regarding religious accommodations, and advice to employers and employees in this area. Panelists will also share impressions and updates regarding how the MCAD’s revised procedural regulations have influenced and changed the claims lifecycle, the commission, and other aspects of the agency’s proceedings.

This webinar was hosted using Zoom.
