    Led by MA/RI MGMA, in collaboration with the CT MGMA, NY MGMA, PA MGMA, and VA MGMA.


    Employers throughout the country are being targeted by a wave of collective, class, and individual lawsuits asserting violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage and hour laws.  Additionally, new regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor created major changes to the overtime exemption rules that impact pay practices of thousands of businesses here and across the country.

    • What’s going on with the DOL’s overtime rule?
    • New federal Legislation that might limit how much overtime is due to employees
    • The five most common wage and hour mistakes (and how to avoid them)
    • Intersection of paid leave laws and wage/hour obligations
    • Review of recent wage and hour cases

Gannon is an attorney with Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C., and practices in the firm’s Springfield, Massachusetts, office.  John has defended employers against claims of discrimination, retaliation, harassment, and wrongful termination, as well as actions arising under the Family Medical Leave Act and wage & hour law.

    Cultivating Candidate Relationships: The Next Phase in the Evolution of Healthcare Recruitment

    Led by NY MGMA, in collaboration with the CT MGMA, DE MGMA, MD MGMA, MA/RI MGMA, PA MGMA, and VA MGMA.


    As most individuals tasked with recruiting and hiring talented medical professionals are painfully aware, the majority of the most qualified healthcare talent is unresponsive at best and unreachable at worst; they’re simply not proactively looking for career opportunities.  But, what if they could be reached?  And when finally in communication with these talented professionals, would hiring managers be able to communicate the right message at the right time?

    Smart practice managers and recruiters are starting to leverage proven content marketing best practices and technology to attract, inform, influence and convert the most experienced talent into quality hires.

    In our informative webinar we’ll share:

    • How talent acquisition has evolved and adopted marketing best practices
    • An introduction to the candidate journey
    • Key tips for engaging candidates throughout their journey
    • How to jump start your recruitment marketing efforts
