MSBA Maryland Employment Law Deskbook, 2021 Revised Edition (Hardcopy)

Description

The MSBA’s 2021 Employment Law Deskbook offers every attorney immediate access to information necessary to provide effective guidance to employers for fulfilling their legal obligations to employees, and to employees seeking redress if their employer fails to do so.  Attorneys in virtually every practice area encounter employment law issues. Labor and employment law specialists, business law generalists, and litigators are all called upon to advise clients on the rights and responsibilities inherent in every aspect of the employment relationship.

Every chapter has been updated to reflect statutory changes and common law developments since 2016.  The practitioner’s guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), for example, has been revised to include a section dedicated to the FMLA in the wake of COVID-19.  The chapter addressing issues affecting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees contains a discussion of the Supreme Court’s 2020 decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, which extends Title VII protections to LGBTQ employees.  A section has been added to the discussion of Maryland Leave Laws to address the operation and impact of the Maryland Healthy Working Families Acts that went into effect in 2018.  An entirely new chapter is devoted to the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
