With job openings hovering at historically high levels, a shrinking labor pool, and the IRS cracking down on regulatory compliance, it is more important than ever to ensure your benefit management practices are both supporting and protecting your business and your employees’ best interests.

You can’t turn on the news, look at a paper, scroll through a newsfeed, or grab a magazine without seeing another claim of sexual harassment in the workplace. The #MeToo movement has gained momentum with some prominent, high profile harassment cases and accusations. The result has been a heightened sensitivity to harassment claims in the workplace both in and out of the spotlight.

Legislative Updates

Through the budget, on April 12, 2018, Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to the Labor Law, requiring employers in the State of New York (employers who have employees within the State of New York) to have a sexual harassment policy, a sexual harassment complaint form, and to provide sexual harassment training on at least an annual basis.  In this regard, on August 23, 2018, New York released its draft of the minimum standards for sexual harassment policies and training.

On March 22, 2018, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed a bill to preempt local governments from enacting and enforcing ordinances related to a multitude of employment matters. Since the bill has now passed both chambers of the Wisconsin Legislature, it is expected to be signed into law by Governor Walker in the next week or two. The bill, AB 748, would standardize employment law across the state by prohibiting local governmental units from enacting their own employment law regulations.
