Analyzing the EEOC's Response to the #MeToo Movement

Goldberg Segalla LLP • June 18, 2018
Since the #MeToo movement began in fall 2017, many have wondered how it will affect both the volume and direction of sexual misconduct litigation around the country. It seems that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is trying to determine the same — indicated both through the commission's recent statements analyzing its own workload and by the reconvening of the Obama-era Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace.

Local Ordinances Not Sold On Gig Workers In Retail

Fisher Phillips • June 18, 2018
Is there nowhere that the gig economy can’t go? As gig workers expand into increasingly unlikely industries—including restaurants, hospitality, beauty, healthcare, and even science—it comes as no surprise that retail wants in on the action. Would-be retail workers are gaining access to open shifts in storefronts through companies like Snag Work, which offers an on-demand platform that connects workers with open shifts for sales, stocker, cashier, customer service positions, and other roles. Although Snag Work is only in a few cities on the east coast so far, companies like it are already cropping up across the country.

The Future Is Now: Workforce Opportunities And The Coming TIDE

Littler Mendelson, P.C. • June 18, 2018
The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics will generate unprecedented opportunities and challenges for employers and workers. The accelerating pace of automation will likely lead to productivity increases on a scale not seen since the Industrial Revolution, while displacing tens of millions of American workers from their current occupations. Too often, news reports dramatically focus on AI and robots as job killers. Unfortunately, the debate over whether jobs eliminated will outnumber jobs created ignores two related and no less important questions:

Security Breaches Costly and Inevitable? [Colorado]

Fisher Phillips • June 18, 2018
On May 29, 2018, Governor Hickenlooper signed HB—1128 into law. Importantly, the Bill amends the State’s data breach notification law to require that affected Colorado residents be notified within 30 days of a data breach, and specifies the information that must be included in the data breach notice. The new law, which takes effect September 1, 2018, applies to “covered entities,” (if your business maintains, owns, or licenses information of Colorado residents, regardless of where the business or data is based, it is a “covered entity”), also sets forth certain data security requirements and adds requirements regarding the disposal of personal identifying information.

Are You An Employer In Connecticut? Do You Have 50 Employees? When Is The Last Time You Did Sexual Harassment Training?

Brody and Associates, LLC • June 18, 2018
Unless you have been living under a rock these last few months, you know sexual harassment claims are on the rise in every industry. We have seen this in all echelons of government, the judiciary, national sporting leagues, entertainment, and the restaurant industry to name a few. One way employers work to combat sexual harassment and create a culture in which such behavior is frowned upon is through training. Very few states require mandatory sexual harassment training. However, in Connecticut, training is mandatory for certain employers.
