The law firm of Ogletree Deakins has prepared a summary of some of the up-coming changes in federal laws affecting employers.  Employers need to learn about the new laws now and take action in advance so they can comply with the new laws when the laws become effective.  The summary begins with:

“The federal government has served notice that it will soon be creating an avalanche of new regulatory and enforcement actions from Washington, D.C., which will place enormous new burdens on employers. Worse, several of the new regulatory strategies will mandate that employers, in effect, demonstrate and document their compliance with employment laws and regulations to all employees, which then can lead to federal enforcement actions, private lawsuits or union organizing.”
