The patchwork of compliance laws across the U.S. is complicated and constantly changing. That, combined with increased employment class-action litigation, leaves employers facing extraordinary risk.
Failing to keep up with this rapidly changing landscape can lead to catastrophic consequences. The top 10 settlements in various employment-related class-action cases totaled $2.72 billion in 2017, an increase of over $970 million from 2016. Similarly, the top 10 government enforcement actions settled for $485.25 million in 2017, up drastically from $52.3 million in 2016.
While issues like “ban the box” and the #MeToo movement made a splash in 2017, we expect to see even more changes this year. Additionally, the Supreme Court review of arbitration agreements with class-action waivers could impact employers across the country, and we could see more answers to questions regarding medical and recreational marijuana. This ebook covers the issues we expect to be big in 2018.
