In a hurry? Key Takeaways:
- State, federal and local/municipal employment laws change frequently
- Employers with 1 or more employees have obligations to comply with state, federal and local/municipal employment laws
Employers with 1 or more employees have obligations to comply with state, federal and local/municipal employment laws. Navigating the murky waters of ever-changing employment laws is one of the largest risk factors in any company. While you don’t need to become an “expert” in employment law, it is helpful to have someone in your corner able to help you identify where there may be exposure.
Common employment laws you may be required to navigate:
- Civil Rights laws (Title VII / EEO)
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
- Age Discrimination & Employment Act (ADEA)
Failing to attend to the details of legal compliance can have far reaching consequences and is simply, not worth the risk.
