Jill Lashay, shareholder in the firm's Labor & Employment section, presented "Labor & Employment Legislation and Regulations 2019: What to Expect and How to Manage" at the 2019 PACAH Spring Conference.
Regulators at the federal, state and local levels are poised to present considerable challenges to employers in 2019. These challenges involve modifications to rules/regulations regarding joint employer liability, pay equity, salary thresholds for exempt classification of workers, overtime pay, medical and other leaves of absence, LGBTQ issues and sexual harassment. Moreover, legislators at the federal level will look to sway voters ahead of the 2020 elections with bills targeted to increase wages and support unions.
Jill discussed the current state of labor and employment law, including recent developments since the last PACAH conference and anticipated legislative/regulatory changes which will have a direct impact on how you manage your workforce to reduce the risk of legal liability. The program will include interactive, real-world examples of how to navigate through the challenges presented by these changes in the law.
