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

Highlights from the September 2019 recap include:

  • The DOL’s new Labor Secretary and final white-collar overtime rule
  • The NLRB’s precedent-overturning decisions on denying employer property access to nonemployees, revising the community-of-interest standard, and eliminating the “clear and unmistakable waiver” standard for unilateral changes
  • The Board’s proposed rule denying statutory employee status to graduate student assistants and others at private colleges and universities
  • The NLRB’s invitation for briefs on NLRA protections for profanity and offensive statements
  • EEOC’s EEO-1 pay data collections both now and in the future
  • Federal appellate decisions on FLSA’s application to marijuana workers and whether an employer’s fear of an employee’s potential future disability is actionable under the ADA
  • California’s foray into statutory treatment of gig workers as employees.
