At the federal level, there is gridlock. So much of the action in the employment area is now happening at the state level. Both parties are pushing for laws at the state level which, if enacted, can affect our jobs as HR professionals and the employees in our organizations. Segal focuses on trends at the state level, provides suggestions for how to evaluate a bill critically as opposed to viscerally and closes with specific recommendations designed to increase your effectiveness as a grass-roots advocate. Among the trends discussed will be bills that focus on: legal prohibitions on bullying; restrictions on the ability of an employer to adopt a no-weapons rule; unpaid leave for victims of domestic violence; increasing the minimum wage as well as the penalties for state wage and hour violations; and restrictions on credit and other background checks.
