Hold on to your hats! A new wind is blowing: New legislation from a new administration

January’s changing of the guard in Washington means new (and some familiar) ideas about workplace laws and regulations. This presentation by Sarah H.

Areas discussed included the gig economy, wage and hour, LGBT rights, and paid leave, among others.
