Sean Mack Quoted in Article on New Jersey Litigation to Watch in 2020
Attorney Sean Mack quoted in Law360 article, “New Jersey Litigation To Watch In 2020.” The article explains cases to keep up with and watch in 2020.

Future lawsuits are likely to be focused on what types of reasonable accommodations employers must make and what kinds of jobs are too safety-sensitive to permit an accommodation for medical marijuana use, Mack said.
