This year has posed unprecedented challenges for New York employers. We know that in addition to keeping your employees safe and maintaining business continuity, it has been difficult to keep track of the rapidly changing employment law landscape in New York and beyond.

This webinar, co-hosted by the Association of Corporate Counsel - New York City Chapter, is designed to ensure that you are up to speed on what changed in 2020 and prepared for what's on the horizon in 2021.

In this 60-minute virtual session, we will review the top developments that impacted New York employers in 2020 and a forecast for 2021. We will provide practical tips for navigating the new normal and checklists to keep you on track. Among other topics, you will hear about:

- COVID-19 and its continued impact on the workforce, including insight on vaccinations and permanent work from home arrangements

- Inclusion and diversity considerations for 2021, including pay equity issues, diversity training, collecting demographic data, considerations on publishing diversity metrics, and an in-house counsel’s view of I&D

- What to expect under a Biden Administration, including predicted changes to the employment and labor landscape; and

- Recent New York laws you’ll want to keep top-of-mind as you head into 2021

We look forward to having you! [View Event Flyer Here]
