Morgan & Morgan presented the forum: Trends in Labor Law 2019

Morgan & Morgan, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture of Chiriquí (CAMCHI), presented the forum: Trends in Labor Law 2019; a seminar organized for the business sector of the province of Chiriqui in the Republic of Panama. The topics were presented by lawyers Ricardo Aleman, Maria Teresa Mendoza and Milagros Caballero, labor law specialists.

The objective of the seminar was to reinforce the companies on issues about:

  • Sexual harassment and discrimination within the company and at an education level.
  • Main issues regarding employee’s paternity: leave and child support.
  • Features of special privileges: disability and chronic disease.

Felipe Venicio Rodríguez, president of CAMCHI, said he was pleased by the opportunity, through the alliance with Morgan & Morgan, so that employers and employees can keep up with these issues of social interest and their respective regulations, which in many cases tend to fail in some sectors, for lack of knowledge: “The most important thing is that we cover this part of Corporate Social Responsibility, with these activities, which are considered priority and key to contribute to the strengthening and development of the companies and our society in general; we hope it can be exploited to the maximum by each one of the participants”, added Rodriguez.

Gisselle Moncada and Ana Frago, attorneys from the Morgan & Morgan office in David, Chiriquí, also participated in the event.
