Long Island employment lawyer, Matthew Weinick, has been selected to chair the Nassau County Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Committee. Founded in 1899 with just nineteen members, the Nassau County Bar Association now boasts nearly 5,000 members.
The Labor and Employment Law committee is tasked with analyzing proposals for new federal and state legislation and regulations relating to employment issues such as employer-employee relations, benefits, and pensions. The committee also reviews judicial decisions concerning employment law matters including discrimination, retaliation, and wage and hour issues.
The committee meets once per month at the association’s Mineola office building, affectionately known by members as “Domus.” Meetings provide committee members the opportunity to discuss the latest developments in employment law. The committee invites a speaker to each meeting, to lead a discussion with members about a particular area of employment law.
