Sandy Grannum is joining a panel — along with a judge advocate general of the U.S. Army and a practitioner in the plaintiff’s bar — that caps the day of the New York City Bar’s annual Employment Law Institute. The plenary ethics session is discussing how to navigate the path of reasonable accommodations related to religion and disability, including leaves of absence and reassignments as accommodations.
As well as the ethics session, the Institute’s program is examining recent trends, developments, and cutting-edge issues in employment law. Topics being discussed include pay equity, new developments regarding independent contractor classifications, wage and hour issues, non-competes and other restrictive covenants, as well as the ethics of internal investigations.
Learn about laws taking effect in 2022 affecting the workplace that were enacted while we were quarantining, including notice of digital workplace monitoring, extended whistleblower protection, COVID-19 developments, and the addition of domestic workers as covered employees under NYC HR law. Panelists are discussing New York Department of Labor guidance on adult cannabis use and the workplace, as well as the 2021 amendments to the Fair Chance Act (FCA). Attendees will learn tips on how to draft employee handbooks (including required policies and training) and offer letters, as well as employment and separation agreements.
