2019 was a big year in labor and employment law. The DOL increased the overtime salary threshold, the NLRB issued a number of decisions, more states instituted paid leave, independent contractor issues arose, and more states protected marijuana use. 2020 will be another interesting year. The Supreme Court will decide whether it is illegal to discriminate against someone because they are transgender or because of their sexual orientation. Several agencies will release a joint employer rule, and a number of other changes will occur.
All businesses must prepare for the upcoming labor and employment changes that will take place this year and they need to review their policies to make sure that they have made the changes that were required from last year. Human Resource professionals, attorneys, supervisors, and business leaders need to pay attention to these issues to avoid expensive surprises that could upset their business.
