This program, taught by Marc J. Scheiner, Special Counsel at Duane Morris LLP, surveys recent trends and hot topics in the area of employment law.
State and local legislative efforts have continued to evolve in the areas of pay equity, sexual harassment prevention, and medical and recreational marijuana. Government agencies have been active as well, most notably with the National Labor Relations Board recently releasing decisions that impact both union and non-union workplaces. Caselaw developments continue to make reasonable accommodations requirements a hot topic for litigation. And more legislative and government action (not to mention court decisions) are coming! Understanding these updates, trends and their impacts are of critical importance when advising employers on many key areas of employment law.
Marc J. Scheiner practices in the area of employment law, counseling clients on a variety of employment issues. He represents clients in employment litigation matters and trains human resources professionals, in-house counsel and supervisors on a range of workplace topics.

He also assists clients in reviewing and drafting employment policies, handbooks, employment agreements, non-compete agreements, and severance agreements.
Mr. Scheiner has represented clients in federal and state courts as well as before federal, state and local administrative agencies in matters involving charges and complaints of age, sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, pregnancy and religious-based discrimination and harassment; retaliation; background checks; drug testing; and unemployment insurance issues. He has also represented indigent clients in Social Security disability appeals before the U.S. Social Security Administration and in hearings before the U.S. Department of Labor.
