On Sept. 29, Gordon & Rees partner Steven M. Berlin will present at the FOJP Workers’ Compensation Seminar from 11:15 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the UJA Federation Headquarters, 130 E. 59th St., Room 710, in New York City.
In the presentation, titled “Overlap & Interplay of FMLA, ADA & Workers’ Comp,” Berlin will untangle the web between the Family & Medical Leave Act, the Americans With Disabilities Act, human rights laws, short-term disability and workers’ compensation.
For more than 25 years, Berlin has devoted his practice to the representation of management in New York and New Jersey. He primarily focuses on defending employers in litigation involving wrongful discharge, harassment, discrimination, retaliation, wage-and-hour violations, restrictive covenant and whistleblowing.
Berlin also advises clients on compliance with federal, state and local fair employment and labor laws and drafts employment-related corporate documents such as restrictive covenants, employment agreements, policies and handbooks, and separation/severance agreements. He represents clients in federal and state courts in New York and New Jersey, administrative agencies, and the National Labor Relations Board as well as in mediation and arbitration.
He is a frequent speaker on labor and employment matters, including presentations for Lorman Education Services, the New York Bar Association, the New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education and law firm-sponsored programs. Berlin has written articles published in the New York Law Journal and New Jersey Labor and Employment Law Quarterly. Additionally, he serves as a contributing author for the Matthew Bender Employment Litigation in New Jersey treatise.
Berlin has been recognized by New York Super Lawyers since 2011 and New Jersey Super Lawyers since 2005 and he was honored as one of the few attorneys in Super Lawyers’ history named to two separate lists in the same year. He also has a peer-review rating of AV Preeminent from Martindale-Hubbell.
