2023 Employment and Labor Law Update
January 11, 2023 – Insights
As 2023 begins, employers in the innovation economy face new employment law challenges, while attempting to navigate an uncertain economic terrain. At a time when many companies are recalibrating and focused inward, the federal government and numerous states are moving forward with bold employment-related initiatives. We highlight several of these initiatives and new laws in the 2023 Employment Law Update, including:
- Salary transparency laws in New York City, New York State, California, Washington State, Colorado and across the country;
- Non-compete law updates for Colorado, Illinois, Washington D.C., and major developments in federal policy;
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the workplace, including New York City’s and California’s attempt to regulate the use of AI in the hiring process;
- New York’s updated COVID-19 Measures and new Hotline for Reporting Sexual Harassment;
- Massachusetts paid family and medical leave act updates, and increasingly challenging Wage Act;
- California CPRA, leave laws, and changes to exemption thresholds;
- California’s AB 51 & the federal Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault & Sexual Harassment Act;
