Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP Publishes the Annual “15 Labor & Employment Resolutions For 2015” Alert
While the looming deadline to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) employer mandate may be causing sleepless nights for many an employer, employers should be mindful of the flurry of activity occurring in the labor and employment arena on issues that will impact their operations in the New Year. In 2014 we saw an ambitious, pro-employee federal regulatory agenda that originated during the first Obama administration come to fruition, and growing initiatives by state and local governments tackling many “hot button” employment issues.
Among the subjects of new state and local activity were discrimination against LGBT employees and unpaid interns in the workplace, paid sick leave, social media privacy, rights of pregnant employees, revisions to overtime exemptions and expanding rights of employees in same-sex marriages. To help employers navigate successfully through a number of these issues, we encourage employers to consider making these 15 Labor & Employment Resolutions For 2015.
