Come January 1, 2019, and you can expect a slew of employment regulations getting effective for 2019. The Department of Labor (DOL) is all set with an aggressive agenda for 2019, including changes in regulations related to pay, labor and discrimination issues. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is not far behind and intensifying its actions against employment discrimination of all types and forms.
Also, the EEOC has set March 31, 2019 as the deadline for filing the 2018 EEO-1 Report (almost six months earlier than previous years). Federal regulations require that all employers in the private sector with 100 or more employees, and federal contractors and subcontractors with 50 or more employees and a federal contract or subcontract amounting to $50,000 or more, file the EEO-1 Report annually.
The DOL has intensified its efforts to audit companies that have not updated their policies and workplace regulations. Employers with multi-state locations are more than ever at risk of noncompliance. Understanding, managing and meeting the DOL’s and the EEOC’s regulatory agenda in will determine whether companies will bear the brunt, or safeguard themselves from strict fines and penalties in 2019.
