HR Dive

Epstein Becker Green’s (EBG) Annual Workforce Management Briefing was featured in HR Dive, in “4 Employment Law Predictions for 2019,” by Ryan Golden. EBG attorneys David W. Garland, Michael S. Kun, Nancy Gunzenhauser Popper, Jeffrey H. Ruzal, and Joshua A. Stein provide insight into the employment law issues that the C-suite will continue to face in 2019.

Following is an excerpt:

Take a look at the landscape of employment law going into 2019, and HR will find many of the same concerns voiced by the C-suite in 2018. The past 12 months brought a swarm of public attention to harassment, structural inequality and accommodations employers won't soon find respite from, according to attorneys at Epstein Becker & Green.

"The light will continue to be shined on those issues," said David W. Garland, a member of the firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice and a member of the firm's board of directors. "We're all finding ways to comply and we're doing it in a period where the talent pool is the smallest it's ever been."

But not every topic is able to capture the public's attention in quite the same way; HR will have plenty of administrative changes to take account of outside of the harassment context, according to attorneys that HR Dive spoke with during the firm's Annual Workforce Management Briefing in New York on Oct. 25, 2018.
