2014 was an unprecedented year of employment legislation activity in the District of Columbia. The D.C. Council enacted four pieces of legislation that impose stringent requirements and prohibitions on employers: 
  • Protecting Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
  • Wage Theft Prevention Amendment Act
  • Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act
  • Earned Sick and Safe Leave Amendment Act
What does all this mean for D.C. employers?  It means, among other things:
  • Changes to your recruiting and hiring processes
  • Changes to your payroll systems
  • Changes to your record keeping systems
  • Changes to your sick leave policy
  • An affirmative duty to offer pregnant employees certain accommodations
  • Threat of civil litigation and heavy fines by the District government
Don’t get caught out in the cold. Join us for an in-depth discussion of how to comply with these new laws before it is too late.
