Myths and Legends of NJ Employment Law



Summary
We'll present slides asking questions or offering statements about what is, and is not, the employment law of New Jersey. We'll then ask (rhetorically) whether this is a "myth" or a "reality," then provide an answer, with substantive explanation, for each, along with practice tips for identifying and/or pleading and discovering such matters. The speaker will weave into the themes of each subject entertaining "nerd culture" quotes, from time to time, that set up the subject matter. At the end, we'll offer a Q&A and some suggestions for further reading, for those interested.
