This week, we’re highlighting an important decision by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) impacting workplace policies, new Colorado laws that will create sweeping changes to the state’s employment landscape, and proposed regulations recently issued for New Jersey’s Temporary Workers’ Bill of Rights.

Employer Policies Will Face More Scrutiny Under Stericycle, Inc.

On August 2, 2023, the NLRB announced a long-anticipated decision in Stericyle, Inc., that will affect how employers craft, apply, and enforce workplace policies, regardless of whether a labor union represents their employees. The majority opinion in Stericycle, Inc., substantively revives the agency’s stance on workplace rules as established in the 2004 Lutheran Heritage decision and rejects the NLRB’s 2017 Boeing decision.

Colorado Enacts Significant New Employment Laws

The Colorado Legislature ended its 2023 session in much the same way that it has done in recent years—by establishing new worker protections and expanding employers’ compliance obligations, with several of these new requirements effective as of August 7, 2023. Learn more.

New Jersey Publishes Proposed Regulations as the Temporary Workers’ Bill of Rights Takes Effect

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) recently released proposed regulations that elaborate on many of the provisions of the Temporary Workers’ Bill of Rights, including its pay equity requirement. In addition to the proposed regulations, the NJDOL has updated its Frequently Asked Questions.
