Many Employers do not realize that the changes in their state regulations have an impact on state specific and multi-state locations and especially with remote employees. Now more than ever Employers, Leaders, HR professionals, and Managers need to be prepared for the changes that impact employees and communicate changes to employees. Training is the best method to keep track of workplace changes and how to create an effective risk management strategy. At this time over 35 states have workplace changes. It is critical to be informed since ignorance is no excuse for non-compliance.


Labor research has proven that Employers have a delay in implementing new regulations and adding it to Employee Handbooks or stand-alone policies. Moreover, new regulations go hand in hand with employee handbook and standalone policies updates. As a compliance officer, I am always providing support to Employers and professionals and see what the gaps are when protecting employees. Federal, State, and local regulations have an impact in maintaining workplace compliance and Employers need to be aware that when Federal, State and Local regulations clash the regulations with the most benefit for the employees supersedes. That is why it is important to be aware and follow all workplace regulations.


More changes in regulations were passed in July 2020 and more expected in 2021 in different states and Employers must ensure they are ready to accommodate the regulations that have changed in those states.
