Attention, New York employers! The Empire State (and the Big Apple) have enacted a

number of employment-related laws — including minimum wage, family leave, freelance worker protections, and bathroom designations — that have recently taken effect, or will take effect in the not-too-distant future. Anjanette Cabrera and Stephen Stecker from our New York City Office have an excellent summary of what you need to know.

(And don’t go away – later this morning, just before the swearing-in, Anjie and Stephen will also have a comprehensive summary of the Trump Administration’s expected impact on all areas of labor and employment law.)

The 2017 inaugural edition of Class Action Outlook is out! Our Class and Collective Litigation Practice Group heads, Maureen Knight and Steve Moore, are starting the year with a bang. Maureen and Steve review the expected impact of the Trump Administration on class and collective actions, Kim Seten discusses the class waiver issue (which is now going to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court), Sean Kramer discusses a Ninth Circuit decision on rounding of employees’ work hours under the Fair Labor Standards Act and California law, and Susan Bassford-Wilson, co-chair of our e-Law Practice Group, has Part 3 of her series on electronic discovery.
