From Fiscal Cliff to Employment Cliff - 2012 in Review, Cox Smith Seminar

February 22, 2013

Though 2012 saw little legislative activity specifically affecting employers, that did not stop administrative agencies from challenging employers by aggressively enforcing existing laws and “reinterpreting” old regulations. This includes the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s issuing guidance on arrests and convictions that, while not game changing, emphasized the new focus of the agency’s efforts: to challenge how employers make employment decisions. The National Labor Relations Board, with its implementation of new regulations and newfound interpretations under the National Labor Relations Act, remains the most dramatic actor.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Prominent cases from 2012, both state and federal
  • Activity of the EEOC, TWC, OSHA, NLRB and others
  • Legislative activity
  • Things to consider for 2013
