Featuring: Robert T. Szyba, Esq.. (moderator); La Toya Barrett, Esq.;Steven Berlin, Esq.; Elizabeth W. Gramigna, Esq.;Kathleen McLeod Caminiti, Esq.; Shannon Morales D’Jamoos, Esq.; Richard Rosenblatt, Esq.; Ravi Sattiraju, Esq.; Glen Savits, Esq.; Howard M. Wexler, Esq.; Nicole DeMuro, Esq.;
Most lawyers regard New Jersey as a liberal state for employment law. However, we were never quite as liberal as California. That is until the current Governor proposed the current agenda. 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.
Foot Prints in the Digital Sand: The Cutting Edge of E-Discovery: A Review of the Latest Developments & What They Mean for Litigators & In-House CounselPresented in cooperation with the NJSBA Labor & Employment Law SectionFeaturing: Brett Anders, Esq. (moderator); Hon. Joel B. Rosen (Ret.);Tom Barce; Scott J. Etish, Esq.; Christopher Lenzo, Esq.; Stephen M. Orlofsky, Esq.; John T. Wolak, Esq. The paper trail has all but vanished, replaced by a digital footprint. And what a large footprint it is. From GPS’s to online purchases, Snapchat, Instagram, text messages, Twitter and e-mails, it’s possible to trace someone’s daily whereabouts, conversations and habits in detail electronically. Deleted items never really disappear, but are waiting to be discovered in the electronic archaeological "dig" that is e-discovery. Sometimes you don’t have to dig that deeply, but often the dig is complicated and challenging to conduct. Correctly done, it can yield valuable information and provide significant and strategic opportunities in litigation. E-discovery mistakes can cost law firms business, cause serious security issues, and even get attorneys into ethical trouble. Register today for this important new program to pickup the developments and techniques in E-Discovery. As an attendee, you’ll gain a solid foundation as well as the confidence you need to handle whatever comes your way, with a special emphasis on employment litigation.
