N.J. Conscientious Employee Protection Act

Printer-friendly version

Time:9am-1pm
Location:EANJ Training Room
Sponsored by:EANJ

The N.J. Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA) accounts for most employment litigation in New Jersey, far more than discrimination suits, although many HR generalists are unaware of CEPA because the statute’s title may be misleading.  As employers perseverate over “discrimination” claims that never materialize, they remain vulnerable to the most employee-friendly whistleblower law in the country. CEPA creates the biggest exceptions to the “at-will” termination rule and accounts for the most lawsuits against employers in New Jersey.

Join John Sarno, Esq. for a sophisticated understanding of the law.  This 4-hour session will cover:

•    What types of employee-conduct does the law protect,
•    Evaluating potential exposure of CEPA lawsuits,
•    What is retaliation,
•    What kind of policy is required,
•    Penalties for violating the law, and
•    HR’s ethical dilemmas

Seating limited to 21 registrants.  Recommended for professionals with 5 or more years of HR experience or who have an in-house advisory role.
