Labor & Employment attorney Jonathan Cohen from Plosia Cohen Law Firm addresses COVID-19 issues confronting employers. Presented by the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce.

COVID-19 has impacted us in so many ways, including how and where we work.  Labor and Employment attorney Jonathan F. Cohen from Plosia Cohen Law Firm in Chester highlights the legalities of this new work environment for Employers and Employees. 

His virtual presentation will include:

  • With COVID-19, what legal issues do Employers face?
  • Can Employers require an employee to be vaccinated or institute voluntary vaccination programs?
  • With Employees working from home, how do Employers protect the integrity of proprietary information and ensure the Employees are working?
  • Which Employers can require an office-based worker to work in the office vs. remotely?
  • If an Employee is told to work on site, must they comply?
  • How are Employers required to ensure a safe work environment? 
  • Under what circumstances are Employers liable if an Employee gets COVID-19?  
  • What type of leave must Employers provide to Employees who cannot work due to COVID restrictions, comorbidities or side effects from vaccination?

About the Presenter:  

Jonathan F. Cohen is a founding partner in the law firm of Plosia Cohen LLC.  He is a dual graduate of Boston University Schools of Law and Public Health.  Since joining a prestigious management-side labor boutique law firm after completing a clerkship at Essex County Superior Court, he has successfully represented clients before all New Jersey State and Federal courts and many administrative agencies.  An accomplished appellate advocate, Cohen argued a case of statewide import before the New Jersey Supreme Court regarding the scope of negotiations in the public sector.  Based on these successes, since 2014, he has been an annual recipient of the “Rising Star” designation in the New Jersey Monthly “Super Lawyer” Edition.  Additionally, in 2016, he was named by the American Institute of Leal Counsel one of the “10 Best” attorneys, in the New Jersey Labor and Employment Law Division.  Cohen regularly speaks and publishes articles regarding cutting edge labor and employment issues, including in New Jersey Business Magazine, New Jersey State Bar Association Labor & Employment Quarterly and the firm’s Client Alerts.  Mr. Cohen is also a Contributing Editor to the Sixth Edition of The Developing Labor Law (and each Supplement since 2008), which is published by Bloomberg-BNA and the American Bar Association and is recognized as the seminal treatise on federal labor law. 

He serves on several professional boards and committees, including as Chapter President of the New Jersey Labor Employment Relations Association (NJLERA), as a member of the NLRB Region 22 Practice & Procedure Committee, the Essex County Civil Bench-Bar Executive Committee, and NJ State Bar Association School Law Committee.  When not practicing law, Cohen devotes time as a judge in intercollegiate and high school mock trial competitions, including at Yale University and the Vincent J. Apruzzese Mock Trial Competition, and serves on the Executive Board of Mrs. Wilson’s House – a halfway house for women transitioning and recovering from substance abuse issues.
