July 2022 Brings 40+ New Employment Law Requirements
As the midpoint of 2022 approaches, HR professionals continue to juggle an array of critical responsibilities. They're overseeing health and safety protocols, adopting flexible workplace policies, recruiting and hiring in a tight labor market, and continuing to support their workforces in the third year of a pandemic.
With the pandemic-fueled increase in remote workers, HR teams also find they must now comply with many additional employment laws in the jurisdictions where their remote employees are located. This new challenge means it's doubly important for organizations to get a jump start on the new employment laws taking effect July 1 at the state and local levels.
This July states and localities roll out more than 40 new employment laws, regulations, amendments and legal provisions that will impact employers. To help HR teams prepare, we've summarized the key topic areas covered and provide a list by state of the new compliance requirements taking effect on or about July 1, 2022.
