"The New Hidden Discrimination Danger: Stereotyping"
Join Richard Steer, Esq. from Tarter, Krinsky & Drogin LLP as he explains hat is stereotyping? Stereotyping of individuals means judging them based upon their legally protected characteristics (e.g., race, sex, etc.). This form of discrimination is gaining increased attention, especially in the workplace. Significant Court decisions recognize that stereotyping can violate employment discrimination laws. Stereotyping is also alleged to play a role in implicit bias and police misconduct which is still at the top of the news. Staffing companies must now be aware of the legal risk posed by stereotyping when placing candidates or dealing with their own employees.
"Complying with New York’s COVID-19 Safety Requirements and Suggested Revisions to Client Contracts"
For our final webinar of the Law Day series, employment attorneys Jason B. Klimpl, Esq., Deputy General Counsel and Elizabeth E. Schlissel, Esq. from Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP will provide an overview of New York State mandated return to work safety protocols and best practices to ensure the safety of temporary workers. Jim Essey, President/CEO of the TemPositions Group of Companies, will also join Jason and Liz in discussing practical operating solutions, including suggested revisions to staffing contracts in light of the new workplace safety requirements.
