Excerpted from a Littler Blog by Joy Rosenquist and Bruce Sarchet

The year 2022 is coming to a close, and the new year will be here before we know it.

While many states, cities and counties seem to be willing to pass employment laws and regulations at any time, the first day of a new year is still the number one day for new employment laws to take effect. The year 2023 will be no exception.

Littler Workplace Policy Institute (WPI) has been tracking a host of new employment laws as they have been debated over the past few months.

Below is WPI’s annual summary of some of the notable compliance obligations employers will soon be facing. As in the past, this article is not intended to be an exhaustive discussion of every single new employment and labor law. The article focuses on laws of “general application,” although a few industry-specific laws are mentioned.

We also cover most large jurisdictions, but not all, and we do not discuss the host of new minimum wage laws, which are just around the corner.

So get ready—new labor and employment law compliance challenges are here to ring in the new year!
