New Mandatory Reporter Law

The Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act was passed in 1980, which created mandated reporting for people other than just doctors for the first time. Anyone who is a mandated reporter is required to report acts and omissions constituting physical abuse, sexual abuse, willful cruelty or unjustified punishment, unlawful corporal punishment or injury, and neglect.

On January 1, 2021, and effective immediately, California passed AB 1963, greatly expanding who is considered a mandated reporter. The new law makes HR employees and front-line supervisors mandated reporters. These changes will affect thousands of new businesses.

Recreational Marijuana Legalized in NY

On March 31, 2021, New York legalized recreational marijuana. The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act legalizes and regulates cannabis use and possession for adults who are 21 and older. The legalized use of marijuana is effective immediately, but the retail sales of marijuana are not expected to begin until mid-2022. This change immediately impacts a New York employer’s ability to take adverse actions against applicants and employees based on recreational marijuana usage. Read on to learn more about the effects on employers and medical marijuana considerations, and more.

COVID-19 Vaccinations: What to Consider BEFORE Implementing a Policy

With the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, employers are faced with myriad questions around when – and if – they should have a vaccination policy for their workplace. Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” approach. Whether a vaccine policy, and which type of policy, is right for your workplace depends on what industry you’re in, your state restrictions, the level of risk to your employees, your workplace culture, your ability and desire to track employee vaccinations, and numerous other considerations.

Read on for a detailed discussion of these issues and more in our comprehensive publication COVID-19 Vaccine and the Workplace: Employer Considerations and Responsibilities, Checklist, and Frequently Asked Questions.

Question: Can an employer mandate that all its employees, without exception, get the COVID-19 vaccine?
