Lunch & Legal Conversations with KMA Human Resources and Sheehan Phinney's Karen Whitley

What to Expect When OSHA Issues its Rules Implementing Federal Vaccine Mandates

Presented by: KMA Human Resources Consulting

Navigating the requirements of the new federal vaccine mandates – and the ensuing backlash and legal challenges – is a daunting undertaking for 2021’s final chapter. In this webinar, we will bring up-to-the-minute clarity on what private-sector businesses with 100+ employees will need to know about OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard (when issued), the risks of compliance vs. litigation, especially where state and federal laws are in conflict, who will foot the bill for employee testing and leave time, considerations for accommodating religious or medical exemptions, and how these rules might be enforced. Even if your organization doesn’t meet the 100+ employee minimum, you’ll still want to tune in and learn how others are tackling these complex issues. 

In this Lunch + Legal webinar, in partnership with Sheehan Phinney, Rhoda McVeigh, Director of Consulting Services at KMA Human Resources, will lead an informative discussion with Karen Whitley, who is keeping a keen eye on these developments as they unfold. And of course, we will include plenty of time for attendees to get their questions in.   

We hope you will join us!

NH Philharmonic Orchestra - From Darkness to Hope

From Darkness to Hope

Presented by: New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra

From Darkness to Hope

Sunday, October 17, 2021 at  2:00 p.m. at Seifert Performing Arts Center (Live stream option available) 

It has been quite an absence since The Phil last performed. Our world has been shaken by tragedy and then offered breakthroughs of hope to rise from those dark days. Our returning concert reflects those themes. From the powerful opening of Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, with its ensuing tender moments, to the contemplative and haunting Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber, to the dark opening of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, through the beautiful French horn solo of its second movement, and  then to its ending of hope and triumph, we are inspired to brighten your spirits.

Date: Sunday, October 17, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Location: Seifert Performing Arts Center @ Salem High School
