Employment Laws to Watch in 2019
Employment law is ever-evolving, and 2019 has ushered in its fair share of changes. Employment laws tend to come in waves, with particular themes for each era. Long ago, child labor was common and legal. A patchwork of state and federal laws was eventually replaced when Congress set minimum age requirements with the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938.
At the turn of the last century, workers had few legal protections from wage theft or unsafe working conditions. Legislation and unions helped change that.
Today’s employment laws tend to be driven by perceptions of what’s fair to workers. From pay equity to transgender rights to anti-bullying, the pendulum is once again swinging in favor of greater protection of employees.
How will these laws impact your business and industry, and what’s the likelihood that they will further expand in 2019? Check out this great article shedding light on a few major employment law trends sweeping the country. - Insperity
