In case you missed the in-depth coverage of Employment Law Daily for May, here’s a recap of some key developments in the L&E community.

Highlights from the May 2019 review include:

  • DOL, EEOC, NLRB reveal regulatory agendas.
  • DOJ argues (in opposition to a certiorari petition) that a purely lateral job transfer is actionable under Title VII.
  • House Democrats attempt to move employee-friendly legislation on mandatory arbitration (Restoring Justice for Workers Act), LGBTQ discrimination (Equality Act), and strengthening workers’ rights under the NLRA (Protecting the Right to Organize Act).
  • The NLRB determines Uber and UberBLACK drivers are independent contractors.
  • Abortion emerges as an employment law issue.

Notable federal circuit court decisions and a few interesting district court decisions also are included.
