Forecasting Employment Law in 2023

In 2023, we expect to see a renewed focus on pay transparency, with several states expanding existing regulations to require salary ranges in job postings. New paid leave and time-off requirements for employers are being introduced, including bereavement leave and paid family leave by virtue of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, attention grows on discrimination and harassment in the workplace, including the expansion of protected categories and regulations targeting bias in automated decision-making tools.
