    Our program will survey the rapidly changing employment law landscape, with practical takeaways for legal and human resources personnel in New Jersey and New York.  The program will provide updates on a variety of important areas including the substantial legal developments during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The program will also discuss the modern trends in leave management, workplace safety (including COVID-19 testing and vaccination issues), remote-work, and wage and hour developments.  The presentation will be interactive, with ongoing opportunities for questions and answers throughout the program.

    Our Presenter is Gateway’s Legislative Affairs Chairperson, Lauren Paxton. Lauren is Of Counsel at Calcagni & Kanefsky, where she focuses on employment litigation, and counsels clients on a wide range of human resources issues, including employee hiring practices, workplace harassment, discrimination, and whistleblowing, as well as worker status, classification, and exemption. Lauren was also an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) for six years handling prosecution of employees for embezzlement and theft, and defending federal agencies against employment discrimination claims.  She graduated from TCNJ and Brooklyn Law School, and is licensed to practice law in New Jersey and New York.
