Federal lawmakers used 2016 to initiate a flurry of legislation and rulemaking. Employers budgeted for changes in the wage hour exemptions, evaluated new regulations on substance abuse testing and wrangled with the increasing complexity of fair pay practices and preventing retaliation. States also made changes at a brisk clip including minimum wage increases, pregnancy accommodations, LGBTQ protections and more. The workplace is more complex and intriguing than ever. Our legal update will examine the old, the new and the uncertainty that exists in-between. Approximately one hundred days into 2017, gather with your colleagues for this critical examination of what exists, what has changed, and what is coming for our workers and workplaces.
