It is Hard to Be an Employer in the City: Annual Update on Key Legal Developments for NYC Employers

Recent developments in federal, state, and local employment law have had a significant impact on New York employers. In this session, our experienced Labor & Employment attorneys will highlight and address these developments, including topical issues such as:

Wage & Hour, including the status of federal and state salary basis tests

Worker Misclassification, including NYC’s Freelance Isn’t Free Act

Pay Equity, including New York’s year-old Achieve Pay Equity Law

Paid Leave, including New York’s Paid Leave Program launching in 2018

Arbitration Agreements, including the validity of class action waivers now before SCOTUS

Affordable Care Act, including updates on health care reform and the impact on employers

Restrictive Covenants, including procurement and enforceability

The discussion will focus on court decisions and legislative and administrative activity that have created a more challenging legal environment for employers, especially for businesses with personnel working in New York City.
