From Pay Transparency to Paid Family Leave: State and Local Labor Laws to Watch
This summer has seen the largest strikes in the U.S. in a long time. State and local governments are more nimble than the U.S. Congress at changing wage or leave policies for workers in their areas. In states like California and New York, unions are chalking up wins, demanding worker protection laws that go beyond the federal level.
To discuss these latest developments, we are asking a group of subject matter experts to hear what kind of legislative initiatives are happening in states and local governments when it comes to paid leave, minimum wages, pay transparency, and protection of gig workers. The speakers will also share a policy outlook for 2024.
Here’s what you can expect us to cover:
- Paid leave “for any reason”
- Minimum wage in general, and in specific industries
- Pay transparency
- Portable benefits for gig workers
