When the government seeks to regulate the conduct of business, the results can be helpful or harmful depending on the regulations and the business to be regulated. Either way, assuming the regulations in question are legal and constitutional, it will be the duty of businesses to comply with them. This is especially true for recently enacted regulations, as governments often are keen to enforce them.
Not too long ago, we told you about some recent legislation from the New Jersey legislature. The law bans the use of non-disclosure agreements relating to claims of discrimination, retaliation or harassment. According to the law, these clauses are now unenforceable if they are in contracts executed after the law was enacted earlier this year. All employment settlement agreements must include a notice to this effect, according to the new legislation.
Employers may have questions on this new law, how it is to be applied and how it could affect business litigation. Here is where an experienced business litigation attorney could prove useful.
