Employment Law Updates in NY, NJ and CA

Course Description:

NY, NJ and CA have kept busy in 2019 through 2021 enacting laws that impact employers in their respective States. Employers must not only comply with federal employment laws, but also with laws in the states and localities where they have ANY employees working. Employers who ignore applicable state and local laws do so at their peril. Lawsuits, fines, penalties, turnover and other adverse consequences ARE avoidable. In this webinar, we will discuss what you need to know, how to comply, and pitfalls to avoid.

Why Should You Attend?

In the wake of COVID and the Great Resignation (and in some cases before), NY, NJ and CA have become even more vigilant about protecting employees’ rights. The result is that employers whose employees work in any of these States have even more obligations and are under greater scrutiny with respect to anti-discrimination, wage and hour, employee leave among a number of other areas. We will discuss the most recent changes and what you can do to stay on top of them and off these states’ radars.

  • Marijuana in the workplace
  • Wage and hour law updates
  • Beefed-up anti-discrimination provisions
