Most lawyers regard New Jersey as a liberal state for employment law. However, we were never quite as liberal as California. That is until Phil Murphy become governor. In his first year in office, Governor Murphy has brought New Jersey almost up to speed with the Golden State by signing bills guaranteeing equal pay, raising the minimum wage, expanding mandatory paid sick leave to nearly every employer in the state, and forming a task force to review employee misclassification. Legalized marijuana is on the horizon, and confidentiality in employment law settlements may soon be a thing of the past. Many believe that these changes will benefit employees and that they are long overdue. Others see significant burdens for employers and wonder if they will drive business out of state. Our panel of plaintiffs and defense attorneys, as well as in-house counsel, discuss what these changes mean for employers and employees and provide insight into how they are impacting the workplace and employment litigation.
