As legal developments affecting the workplace take effect, employers should ensure that their employee handbooks and workplace policies are compliant and current. Whether on the federal, state or local level, or related to leaves of absences or pregnancy accommodations, there continues to be a rise of legislation that touches upon employee rights and employer obligations in the workplace.
This episode summarizes federal, state and local trends and legal developments that became effective in 2020 and affect employee-facing policies. This does not include COVID-19-related laws that are temporary in nature (e.g., in effect for a defined period or for the duration of the public health emergency).
