Three top Wilson Elser attorneys in the employment arena will present an update on significant legislative and juridical regional developments over the past 12 months, emphasizing practical applications and best practices. 

  • The New York portion of the presentation will cover changes and issues affecting New York State and New York City human rights law.

  • The New Jersey Legislature has expanded existing legislation affecting discrimination, family leave, wage-and-hour wage payment, and severance pay for mass layoffs. New on the landscape are the Compassionate Use Medical Cannabis Act, Salary History Ban, CROWN Act on discrimination based on natural hair or hair styles, and job protections for employees who have or may have COVID-19.

  • Virginia's new generally employee-friendly laws incentivize plaintiffs to file in state court and make removal to federal court more challenging for employers. Changes are expected to have a substantial and long-term impact on employment litigation in the state.
