We Invite You To a Complimentary Breakfast Seminar
hosted by the Labor & Employment Law Group of Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook, & Cooper, P.C.
Join us for an interactive discussion covering recent developments in employment law affecting employers. Our Labor & Employment attorneys will discuss changes in employment law and what employers can expect in 2022.
Topics of Discussion include:
COVID Wrap Up – Where are we now?
presented by Kathleen M. Connelly, Esq.
With the winding down of the COVID-19 pandemic following two years of rapidly changing mandates and recommendations from government and health officials, many employers are understandably confused about what workplace obligations remain in place.
Remote Working Trends – Online and on the Clock
presented by Lisa Gingeleskie, Esq.
With the growth of remote work since the pandemic, employers have to adapt to new methods when managing employees. We will discuss the legal considerations for managing a remote workplace including wage and hour considerations, record keeping and performance management, and navigating the potential state and local laws triggered by employees working in multiple industries.
Independent Contractors – Classify at your Own Risk
presented by Joshua L. Weiner, Esq.
Classifying a worker as an independent contractor is a tempting proposition. You are not required to pay independent contractors the minimum wage or overtime and can reduce payroll taxes. However, are the workers you designate as independent contractors actually employees in the eyes of the law? The law in NJ recently has taken a dramatic turn, making it much more difficult to classify workers as independent contractors and implementing harsh penalties against those employers who improperly classify employees.
Cannabis – Medical, Recreational, & Testing
presented by Elizabeth Engert Manzo, Esq.
This overview will provide an update of the current legal status of medical and recreational marijuana in New Jersey and at the federal level. We will discuss workplace drug testing including testing innovations, testing requirements, and status of the Workplace Impairment Recognition Expert (WIRE) certification/requirement.
