NJ CAR will be conducting three half-day seminars around the State that will provide attendees with a better understanding of how to maintain compliance with all applicable employment laws.

When used consistently and fairly, employment laws assist companies in creating and maintaining an environment that promotes cooperation and professionalism. In addition, the proper understanding of the law can help prevent costly litigation.

Dina M. Mastellone, Esq., Director of Genova Burns LLC’s Human Resource Training & Audit Programs Practice Group and Counsel in the firm’s Employment Litigation Practice Group, will discuss the “dos and don’ts” of hiring (including pre-employment testing, new requirements for employment applications and the job interview process), as well as employee reprimands, performance appraisals and proper ways of terminating an employee.

Dina will also touch on proactive measures your business can use to avoid risky behavior to prevent claims of harassment or discrimination in the workplace and how management should address such claims, if they arise.

The workshop will also provide comprehensive training on understanding the Federal Family & Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), as well as the applicable leave of absence law for New Jersey.

This workshop is primarily for Dealer Principals, General Managers, General Sales Managers, Controllers and Office Managers.

The first seminar will be held June 17, 2015 at NJ CAR Headquarters (856 River Road, West Trenton, NJ 08628). The second seminar will be held June 18, 2015 at the DoubleTree Hilton (700 Hope Road, Eatontown, NJ 07724). The third seminar will be held on June 25, 2015 at the Courtyard Marriott (1 Polito Avenue, Lyndhurst, NJ 07071). All seminars will run from 9:30 AM until 12:30 PM.
