Employers Association of New Jersey, in partnership with the NJ Division on Civil Rights, is excited to announce a comprehensive three-part webinar series aimed at educating employers for compliance with the NJ Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD). Each session will provide participants with practical knowledge and best practices to ensure compliance and enhance their management of workplace rights under the NJLAD.

The series kicks off with a dynamic session, The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination in the Workplace, focusing on creating a workplace that is free from discrimination and harassment. Employers will learn about key protections under the NJLAD, effective strategies to prevent harassment, and potential employer liability.

Continuing with the series, the second webinar, Reasonable Accommodations in the Workplace, will discuss the practical aspects of reasonable accommodations under NJLAD, including the interactive process, undue hardship, non-apparent disabilities, and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. This session will guide employers through the legal framework and practical steps for accommodating employees effectively, ensuring compliance and fostering an environment of equality.

The final session, Recognizing and Responding to Microaggressions, focuses on the nuanced effects of microaggressions in the workplace. Participants will learn about how microaggressions can contribute to hostile environment harassment and disparate treatment.

"These webinars are a vital part of our mission to provide New Jersey employers with the resources they need to foster a respectful and compliant workplace environment," said Amy Vazquez, Vice President at EANJ.  “We are excited to partner with the Division on Civil Rights on this project.”

The webinars are scheduled for June 26, July 24 and August 15, 2024 and are open to all employers in New Jersey at no cost.  Employers can opt to attend the full series or the individual sessions that appeal to them. Registration is now open and spots are limited to encourage interactive sessions and detailed discussions.
