  2. It’s #WorkforceWednesday! This week, we look at the increase in mandatory vaccination policies, a new rule for tipped workers, and a Supreme Court decision against organized labor.

    Employers Implement Mandatory Vaccination Policies

    Mandatory vaccine policies are on the rise. A month after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released updated guidance on mandatory vaccination policies, an increasing number of employers have started introducing these mandates. Courts are also weighing in—a Texas District Court recently affirmed a hospital’s mandatory vaccination policy - healthemploymentandlabor.com/2021/06/24/federal-court-affirms-hospitals-mandatory-covid-19-vaccination-policy/.

    DOL Brings Back Tipped Worker 80/20 Rule

    The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed a new rule that would once again regulate the amount of time a tipped employee can spend on non-tipped work. The Trump DOL previously withdrew the 80/20 rule.

    Supreme Court Rules Against Organized Labor

    In a blow to organized labor, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a California law allowing union organizers to meet with agricultural workers on an owner’s property is unconstitutional. The court found that the law amounts to a taking of the owner’s property without just compensation.

    Increasing Scrutiny of No-Poach Agreements

    The crackdown on unlawful no-poach agreements has made it to the state level.

    NLRB Memo on COVID-19 Policy Complaints

    A recent National Labor Relations Board advice memorandum indicates employee questions and complaints regarding COVID-19 safety policies and practices are unlikely to constitute protected concerted activity unless the questions and complaints are intended to improve conditions of employment and occur in a group setting or on behalf of, or in concert with, other employees.

  4. It’s #WorkforceWednesday! This week, we look at the ways in which states are relaxing COVID-19 restrictions and discuss the much-anticipated Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) emergency temporary standard.

    States Adjust COVID-19 Regulations to Align with CDC Guidance

    States are relaxing or lifting COVID-19 regulations in different ways to align with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), causing confusion for many employers. The CDC’s guidance does not provide a recommended mechanism for confirming vaccine status, which is also leading to different regulations in different states. Read more about the changes in:

    OSHA Releases COVID-19 ETS for Health Care

    OSHA has released its much-anticipated COVID-19 emergency temporary standard for health care workers – ebglaw.com/news/osha-issues-covid-19-emergency-temporary-standard/. The standard requires health care employers to maintain social distancing policies as well as offer time off for employee vaccination and recovery.

    The agency also released guidance for other industries, outside of health care, to help maintain safety for unvaccinated workers - ebglaw.com/news/osha-issues-updated-guidance-for-most-non-health-care-employers-and-businesses/.

    Other Highlights

    Anti-Money Laundering Act and Internal Complaints

    The Anti-Money Laundering Act, which took effect this year, extends whistleblower protections to internal complaints and compliance professionals. For counsel and compliance professionals the new law raises legal and business ethics concerns.

    CT Broadens Equal Pay Law

    A new Connecticut law, signed last week, broadens the state’s equal pay law, adding “credential, skill, or geographic location,” to the list of bona fide factors other than sex employers can utilize when assessing differentials in pay. CT employers should consider conducting a pay audit in advance of the October 1, 2021, effective date.
