A Note from the Editors

This issue of Employment Matters Monthly is devoted to highlighting the recent flurry of new federal employment regulations. What do these new rules mean for you, and how should you respond? Below, under New Employment Laws & Their Impacts, you can link to blog posts explaining the new rules and how they affect various types of employers.

You may also notice that our site has a new, more colorful look. The redesign improves readability and makes it easier to access our content. We hope you’ll like it.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact us or one of our team’s attorneys.
