NJ Employment Legislation In The Pandemic
David Lichtenberg and Christopher Capone

This presentation will cover newly passed state laws during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the changes to federal law, New Jersey has been at the forefront of passing legislation that affects every aspect of the workplace. We will break down the logistics and the impact of these laws, both in the short and long term.    

Workplace Safety Considerations When Shelter in Place Orders Are Lifted
Travis Vance

After shelter-in-place orders are lifted, how will New Jersey employers reopen safely and effectively?  In addition to the recommendations issued by New Jersey and local health departments when determining the most appropriate actions to take, employers are also inundated with guidance from OSHA in making decisions regarding reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This presentation will help you avoid costly mistakes and liability as well as answer safety questions employers are facing including how best to assess business operations, bringing employees back to work, and ensuring a safe workplace.

Wage and Hour Pitfalls 
Kathleen Caminiti and Eric Baginski

Wage and hour compliance is never easy.  The pandemic has forced some New Jersey businesses to shut down completely and others to reduce operations or shift to a remote work.  Now, as businesses throughout the state reopen, employers are faced with a whole new slate of obstacles.   Despite these compliance challenges, there are problems that commonly crop up in the wage and hour context that employers can and should avoid.  This presentation will focus on the most common wage and hour mistakes all employers should keep in mind to avoid costly litigation in the pandemic atmosphere. 

Understanding the Alphabet Soup of FFCRA and NJFLA in a COVID-19 World
Samantha Monsees and Alvaro Hasani

It’s been a busy few months for government officials, with legislators passing multiple sweeping laws, each with potentially big implications for New Jersey businesses. In this presentation, we will discuss some key takeaways for your business from the Federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and then dive deeper into the New Jersey Family Leave Act, while also touching on family leave insurance.

Crisis within a Crisis: Immigration Issues in a Time of COVID-19 
Jessica Cook

An unprecedented global pandemic that knows no borders has brought into sharp focus the intersection of U.S. immigration and public health policy, and the unique challenges employers face with their ever evolving workforce.  The Trump administration, which before the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had introduced some of the most stringent immigration restrictions in modern times, has raced to put in place a sweeping series of measures in response to the crisis.  Fisher Phillips takes a closer look at the many immigration issues arising during the pandemic.
