Join our webinar to avoid the legal pitfalls associated with New York's flurry of new employment laws and regulations. These reflect trends that have been sweeping across the country and are likely to affect even more states in the future.

The new legislation ranges from paid sick leave and pregnancy accommodations to legalized marijuana, ban-the-box laws, and wage theft. These can have widespread effects on employers' relationships with their employees.
