2016 promises to be a challenging year for employment and wage and hour compliance. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Labor (DOL) have been ramping up enforcement efforts, targeted investigations, audits and litigation. The EEOC recently unveiled changes to so-called employer information reports requiring federal contractors and other employers with more than 100 workers to report more compensation data than previously required in order to uncover incidents of potential wage discrimination. The DOL and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) have also increased their enforcement efforts, including those related to joint employer liability.
To explore the new and expanding initiatives undertaken by various state and government agencies, Manatt will host a series of breakfast seminars in its West Coast and East Coast offices. These programs will focus on some of the most relevant updates for employers and provide practical tips in minimizing risk and effectively responding to this changing landscape.
