Offit Kurman Telebriefs® | EEOC and National Labor Relations Board Policy Updates
The EEOC has required a second component regarding compensation data, which will need to be filed by September 30th for the years 2017 and 2018. This will require that you include classification and pay data and hours worked for those two years. Additional information regarding this requirement may be found on the EEOC website.
In other EEOC news, on October 8th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on three cases having to deal with whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects an individual employee based on either sexual orientation or gender identity. Ex-Republican officials and other advocacy groups have submitted an amicus brief in support of an expansive reading of Title VII.
In further FLMA news, there is some indication that the Department of Labor may be considering issuing new regulations in 2020, which would, on the other hand, encompass ways to better protect and suit the needs of workers, reduce administrative, and compliance burdens on employers.
Very recently the National Labor Relations Board released a general council advice memo revising several policies that in comparison to the Obama administration board’s policies are considerably more pro-employer.
