We’ve created this blog to help our clients and others to track the numerous developments in labor and employment law at both federal and state levels. We hope to bring you not only the news, but our thoughts on how these new developments may impact your business.
This focus will include developments under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act (WARN), and the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), along with their state and local counterparts. We will also follow events as they unfold regarding proposed legislation such as the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA).
We have links to a number of relevant agencies and other sources and have archived articles previously prepared in areas such as occupational safety and health.
If there are additional topics you would like to be covered as well, please post a comment with suggestions.
