  • April 2019 Government Affairs Update

    Apr 27, 2019

    Since the last Government Affairs Update, the U.S. Department of Labor proposed updated rules for calculating an employee’s regular rate of pay and for determining when a joint employer arrangement exists. Congressional Republicans submitted their paid family leave bill, which differs markedly from the Democrats’ proposal, and the Supreme Court took several steps closer to answering questions regarding the scope of the prohibition on sex-based discrimination under Title VII. Last, the Affordable Care Act took another blow when the Trump administration issued a formal declaration that it would no longer defend any part of the law in court.
