Labor and Employment Law Changes that Affect Employers:

  1. New proposed FMLA regulations
  2. Bills  recommending paid leaves of absences for employees
  3. Increases to the state and federal minimum wage
  4. Which states have “banned the box” preventing employers from asking applicants about criminal convictions
  5. Updates in pregnancy discrimination laws and cases
