New laws to take effect in 2018. Are you ready?

Change is on the horizon. In 2017, numerous states and municipalities passed laws that impose additional obligations on employers and significant penalties for compliance failures. For example, employers in numerous states and cities will need to provide paid sick and parental leave to employees beginning in 2018. In addition, more states passed “ban the box” legislation prohibiting inquiries about a job applicant’s criminal history and laws prohibiting employers from inquiring about an applicant’s prior salary. 

Over the next week, we will highlight various significant labor and employment laws going into effect in the New Year.
