2020 was largely defined by the COVID-19 global pandemic and by the United States’ national reckoning with racial and social injustice. In response, many states have moved quickly to enact changes in employee leave laws and workplace safety protocols, and have acted to strengthen anti-discrimination and equal wage protections focused on correcting long-standing practices that disproportionately and negatively impact racial and other minority groups. New laws and new suggestions for best practices will be discussed.
