Webinar! – New Jersey Passed the Broadest Pay Equity Law in the Country – What You Need to Know to Avoid Liability

Calendar - social-02This webinar was recorded on Thursday, May 3, 2018.

About the Program 
On Tuesday, May 24, 2018 New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed into law a bill amending the state discrimination law, including sweeping pay equity protections. This amendment makes New Jersey’s law one of the broadest equal pay statutes in the country including treble damages, a six year statute of limitations and incorporated the continuing violation doctrine into the law. Under the new law, it is unlawful for anyone who is in a “protected class” under NJ’s Law Against Discrimination to receive lower pay or benefits for “substantially similar work.” Join FordHarrison attorneys Salvador Simao and David Kim for a webinar analyzing the New Jersey Pay Equity Law and its impact on employers. This session will discuss best practices for staying in compliance and what your company needs to know now that the law has passed.

Webinar! – Winning on the Front End: Implementing Wage-Hour Policies to Best Defend Against Class and Collective Actions

Calendar - social-02This webinar was recorded on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

About the Program 
Join FordHarrison attorneys Jeff Mokotoff and Pat Ryan, members of our Wage & Hour Practice Group, for the first installment in a series of wage and hour presentations aimed at understanding and defending against claims brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”). During this one hour presentation, Jeff and Pat will discuss practical ways that employers can limit the risk of FLSA collective actions (and corresponding state law class actions) prior to any lawsuit being filed. The presentation will provide policies and procedures that constitute “best practices” under the FLSA—including providing recommendations regarding timekeeping procedures, remote working, travel time, and other topics. Additionally, Jeff and Pat will provide participants with sample documents that they can modify and implement, as needed, at their respective companies.
