The June 2023 edition of New Jersey Lawyer covers the latest trends attorneys should know involving the workplace and employment law.
The issue, published by the New Jersey State Bar Association, features nine articles that provide a valuable template for attorneys involved in multiple practice areas, whose clients are affected by the ever-evolving legal parameters of the employer-employee relationship.
The entries cover proposed legislation to restrict the rights of businesses to negotiate non-compete and non-poaching agreements with prospective employees, recent legal developments that expand coverage to employees entering or leaving the workplace, whether uninsured employers should receive protection from employee lawsuits under New Jersey’s Workers’ Compensation Act and more.
