  • New York City Human Rights Law Amended to Include “Caregiver” Status

    In 2015, the State of New York added “familial status” as a class of persons protected under state discrimination laws, prohibiting discrimination against pregnant employees and employees with minor children.  On May 4, 2016, the New York City Human Rights Law (“NYCHRL”) will add a new protected class that offers an even greater degree of protection.  The NYCHRL will be expanded to protect “caregivers” from employment discrimination based on one’s actual or perceived status as a “caregiver.” As amended, the NYCHRL will add “caregivers” to the increasing number of classes already covered under the law, including age, race, creed, color, national ...

  • Entrepreneurs: These Networking Blunders Can Cost You

    Successful entrepreneurs know that having a strong network behind them is critical. Done well, networking is hard but important work.  There’s no shortage of mixers, parties, meetings, and lectures to attend, and most professionals, business owners, and job seekers have no problem showing up.  But too many people think they’ve done their job just by walking in.  They pass the time by traveling in a pack with the people they came with, lingering by the food table, or checking Facebook on their phone.   At the other extreme are those who interrupt conversations and make requests of VIPs without offering anything ...

  • Court of Appeals Restricts the Ability to Challenge a SEQRA Positive Declaration Requiring Preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement

    If an agency such as a Town Board, Planning Board, or a Board of Zoning Appeals finds that an application before it may cause a substantial adverse impact on the environment, it is required by the State Environmental Quality Review Act (“SEQRA”) to adopt a positive declaration, and require preparation of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (“DEIS”) before it may determine the merits of the application.  The immediate impact of such a determination on an applicant is that a final ruling on an application will be substantially delayed, and a great deal of money will be spent to prepare the ...

  • Talking to Someone with Dementia

    This month I’m going to take a break from the series I’ve been doing to talk about talking.  Sometimes it’s hard enough to talk to someone without them misunderstanding what we’re saying. If you’re trying to talk to someone with dementia, it’s twice as hard (if not more).  But there are certain things that you can do to help the conversation and stop yourself from becoming totally frustrated. One of those things is to always identify yourself.  It may sound silly, but your loved one may not always remember exactly who you are.  My mother has dementia and gets confused between me ...

  • Allowing Employees to Telecommute

        In today’s workplace, a great percentage of employees will request the ability to work from home for one reason or another, be it temporary or not. Having employees work from home is both an opportunity and a challenge for both the employer and the employee. Employers avoid having to find space for the employees to work from, and employees may be more satisfied and committed to their employers for the benefit of working from home.  However, both parties must pay attention to make sure that the “team” spirit and internal workplace dynamics don’t suffer. It is strongly recommended that employers implement ...
