Dunkin’ franchisees from across New England gathered in late April for the annual NE regional meeting. DDIFO invited new business members to join the event at the Sheraton Needham Hotel.

Labor attorney Dan Field, a former Chief of the Massachusetts Attorney General's Fair Labor Division, was a featured speaker and touched on critical issues like Joint Employer, the Massachusetts “grand bargain”, Rhode Island’s Sick & Safe Leave law as well as New Hampshire's new youth employment law among others.

Boston television newsman Anthony Everett was a special guest at the meeting. Everett is the host of the long-running local TV magazine “Chronicle” and a former reporter on station WCVB. Everett’s speech centered on how people get their information today and the importance of checking their sources to validate the information they use to make personal, political and professional decisions.
