New Employment Law Requirements in Massachusetts

Learn the steps that can be taken now to help prepare for when the new EEOC rules will go into effect with Massachusetts employment law. There have been significant changes to laws impacting employers in Massachusetts. New rules govern the interview process, interaction with employees, and pay of men and women. At the same time, changes are looming at the EEOC that will have a far reaching impact on its enforcement of employment laws. This is one of those times when it is critical for companies to get ahead of new laws, rules, and mandates. Preparation, in advance, is critical given the potential financial repercussions for companies that are not proactive. You will gain a clear understanding of the new laws and how they impact companies. The Massachusetts law built in benefits for proactive employers that can be significant. We will talk about those benefits and how they can be implemented. We will also talk about when the proposed changes at the EEOC go into effect, what should be done now, and why it matters. Even from an employer’s perspective, not all of these changes are negative. This topic will also feature material discussing how these changes can benefit all companies. As a result, there will be a section devoted to best practices.
