Exploring Labor Law Developments & Challenges for 2024

Webinar Recap

In today's regulatory landscape, businesses are facing heightened scrutiny. Key enforcement agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Labor (DOL), and National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are prioritizing areas such as workplace discrimination and fair labor practices. And recent trends highlight a focus on work-life balance and inclusivity, with increasing requirements for accommodations under laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

Employers must also monitor changes in minimum wage rates, overtime regulations, and worker classification, among other hot topics. So, amidst this evolving legislation, how can businesses adapt to mitigate risks and ensure compliance?

In our webinar, “Exploring Labor Law Developments & Challenges for 2024,” Alexis Knapp, an attorney and shareholder at Littler with over 16 years of experience in labor and employment law, delves into the latest compliance developments and HR trends set to impact business owners throughout the remainder of this year – and beyond.

Here's some of what she covered:

  • Priority areas and enforcement by the EEOC, DOL, and NLRB
  • Recent leave and accommodation requirements and trends
  • Key wage and hour developments to monitor
  • Legislation trends and challenges facing employers

With new and changing trends, legislation, and requirements, maintaining compliance can seem daunting. Knapp emphasizes the importance for businesses to engage in meaningful conversations with individuals entitled to specific accommodations. Keeping the process interactive is key.

“Accommodations may feel like the toughest hurdle,” says Knapp. “Invoking the support of your PEO can help you work through those issues. You will see an increase in accommodations across the board, which means a case-by-case basis is the best approach to individual needs.”
