New Jersey Supreme Court Limits Non-Disparagement Clauses

The New Jersey Supreme Court recently ruled that an employer cannot prevent an employee from talking about workplace harassment they experienced, even after a settlement. The court held that to construe non-disparagement agreements otherwise would violate New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination.

Decoding DOL's New AI Guidelines

The DOL’s Wage and Hour Division has published guidance directing field staff on employers' use of AI. The guidance lists various examples of workplace AI and identifies potential compliance challenges those AI systems pose to employers.

DOL Restructures OSHA Regions

The DOL has announced that it is restructuring OSHA's operations; establishing a new regional office in Birmingham, Alabama; and consolidating two regions into a single San Francisco, California, office.
