Keep Current with Ever-Changing Employment Laws with New, Attorney-Developed Service

The legal and regulatory landscape for employers today is increasingly complex. Beyond workplace posters and handouts, you must keep abreast of specific federal, state, county and city employment laws – and understand their impact on your business. In this fast-moving environment, you risk penalties, fines and even employee lawsuits for being unaware or failing to respond appropriately.

In recent months, for example, employers have been affected by the following federal changes:

  • Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, where all covered employers must provide reasonable accommodations to workers with known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions (unless the accommodations would impose an undue hardship)
  • Redesign of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, that streamlines the review of identity and employment authorization documents when hiring, effective Nov. 1, 2023

Beyond these federal changes, the state-level activity is even more brisk:

  • Colorado Makes Several Changes to Workplace Discrimination and Harassment Laws
  • California Passes New Workplace Violence Prevention Standards
  • New York Bans Employers from Disciplining Employees Who Decline to Attend or Participate in Employer-Sponsored Meetings Concerning Religious or Political Matters
  • New Jersey Announces Minimum Wage Increase for 2024
  • Illinois Amends Equal Pay Law to Require Pay Information in Job Postings
  • Texas Employers Must Post Information on Reporting Workplace Violence or Suspicious Activity Under New Law
  • Maines Passes Paid Family and Medical Leave Law
  • Delaware Releases Rules for Upcoming Paid Family and Medical Leave Program

The Employment Law Alert Service provides 12 months of legal
monitoring and automatic email notifications when laws are added
or revised at the federal, state, county and city levels.
