This Legal Quick Hit will provide an update on the practical import of new federal employment laws and regulations. We will discuss how new authorities like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the significantly-expanded Americans with Disabilities Act have increased liability risks for nonprofits and other employers, and will offer proactive strategies for minimizing those risks. We also will discuss anticipated developments at the U.S. Department of Labor in the wake of the confirmation of Hilda Solis and other senior officials, and that agency's increasing focus on wage and hour compliance issues.
