On Wednesday, August 8, John G. Geppert, Partner and Chair of Scarinci Hollenbeck’s Public and Education Law groups, will be featured on a podcast entitled, School Law Today – The Impact of the Janus Decision. The podcast, hosted by the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA), will feature Mr. Geppert alongside the NJSBA’s Member Engagement Director Ray Pinney, in a discussion regarding a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Janus v AFSCME (2018).
The 5-4 decision in Janus held that public-sector “agency shop” arrangements run afoul of the First Amendment. Mr. Geppert and Mr. Pinney will discuss a number of topics surrounding the decision including a review of the case itself, the ruling’s impact on school districts and much more.
“I look forward to speaking with Mr. Pinney. Due to the potential implications of the decision in Janus v AFSCME, I feel this is an important discussion that needs to occur,” stated Mr. Geppert.
The podcast will be available to stream during and after its recording on August 8th at the following link:
