On September 12, 2017, Long Island employment lawyer Matthew Weinick delivered a presentation to a packed meeting of the Nassau County Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law committee. Weinick spoke about cases decided by the United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. Issues decided by the Court and discussed by Weinick included the causation standard for FMLA retaliation cases, whether employees can be lawfully terminated for refusing to sign an illegal confidentiality agreement, and whether employees of religious organizations can bring claims of employment discrimination against the organization.
The hour long presentation drew a large and attentive crowd. Attendees participated in discussions about the National Labor Relations Board’s recent employee friendly decisions and the meaning of changes to the causation standard in employment retaliation cases.
Weinick proudly serves as secretary of the Labor and Employment Law committee and was excited to have the opportunity to present in front of so many of his colleagues, friends, and even adversaries.
