- Pay Equity Rules
- Whistleblower Litigation
- Arbitration of Employee Grievances
- Accommodation of Pregnant Workers
- Protection of Domestic Violence Victims
- Limits on Employer Use of Social Media and more.
Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation cases continue to raise the standards that New Jersey employers must meet.
This 90-minute webinar will cover all of these timely topics, as well as a discussion of the 2015 trends in employment law and litigation practices to help you prepare for the issues you are likely to face in the coming year.
You’ll be able to ask Ms. Kiernan questions at the conclusion of the program.
