Wilentz attorneys Michael F. Schaff, Peter A. Greenbaum and Tracy Armstrong will participate in a round table discussion at the 2020 New Jersey Corporate Counsel Institute regarding simple to complex Limited Liability Company Operating Agreements and the latest labor and employment law challenges facing in-house counsel.

Mr. Schaff and Mr. Greenbaum, co-team leaders of the Corporate practice group at Wilentz, will consider potential business issues arising from a variety of Limited Liability Company Operating Agreements, including common mistakes of the “one-size-fits-all” model, constitution of the “membership interest”, “exit strategies” for members, and the viability of “Delaware Series LLCs” in New Jersey, among other topics.

Ms. Armstrong, Wilentz employment law attorney, will discuss the recent enactment of New Jersey's Wage Theft Act, the expanded New Jersey’s Family Leave Act and Family Leave Insurance Law, exemptions from overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act, cannabis usage in the workplace based on the recent New Jersey Supreme Court decision in Wild v. Carriage Funeral Holdings, Inc., and the Jake Honig Compassionate Use Medical Cannabis Act.

Presented in cooperation with the NJSBA In-House Counsel Committee, the full-day seminar will provide corporate counsel with the tools to navigate the changing, complex business environment in New Jersey. Other topics of interest include ethical considerations for in-house lawyers, the future of privacy law and cybersecurity following the California Consumer Privacy Act, and enforcement trends related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

This program has been approved by the Board on Continuing Legal Education of the Supreme Court of New Jersey for 7.0 hours of total CLE credit. Of these, 1.2 qualify as hours of credit for ethics/professionalism.
