The face of employment law – including the impact of the pandemic on company policies, federal and state legislation, and employment litigation – remains in a state of transformation even as the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus become increasingly assimilated into what many now perceive as a “new normal” for both employers and employees.
Perhaps more than ever before, employers and the professionals who guide them are weighed down by the prospect of staying ahead of the curve in terms of the latest employment-related developments, and by the need to formulate policies to ensure safety in the workplace, accommodate individual beliefs and freedom of choice, maintain legal and regulatory compliance, and avoid potential risks that might result in disputes or litigation.
This presentation will provide a timely analysis of the current employment environment in the courts, including cases associated with medical leave, FMLA, workers’ compensation, pregnancy leave, and COVID-linked issues including vaccination exemption requests and disability discrimination claims related to “long COVID.”
The program will include a round-up of new and proposed legislation on both the federal and New Jersey-specific levels. In addition, the panel will address some recommended best practices for employers, with a particular focus on areas of concern that have become especially relevant in the rise of WFH culture.
Issues to be addressed include:
- The types of employment litigation matters that are on the rise
- The potential impacts of newly enacted and pending litigation at the federal and state levels
- Business policies to address employee “etiquette” in email/text/written communications and during interactions on virtual meeting platforms such as Zoom
