To provide a general 2020-2021 Labor and Employment Law Update, topics include:
- The COVID-19 pandemic affected nearly every aspect of American life in 2020, including employment. Federal and state agencies responded to the virus by developing and implementing new laws and regulations related to unemployment, workers’ compensation, paid leave, and more. Guidance on telework policies, mandatory vaccinations for employees, and employer liability for employees who contract COVID-19 at work are will continue to develop throughout 2021.
- Also in 2020, the Department of Labor’s finalized a new overtime rule and joint employer test. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) also reversed several Obama-era standards. In 2021, these federal agencies could reverse Trump-era regulations under the new Biden administration.
- In June of 2020, the United State Supreme Court decided the landmark civil rights case Bostock v. Clayton County. The Court held that an employer who fires an individual employee merely for being gay or transgender violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
- Dozens of labor and employment-related bills are before the Montana Legislature this year. These include revisions to the Wrongful Discharge from Employment Act and workers’ compensation laws, as well as new regulations on employer-mandated vaccinations.
