The November 2013 edition of Skadden's Employment Flash provides an update on recent court rulings involving labor and employment issues, including a federal district court decision finding that New York City's Human Rights Law does not protect unpaid workers. We also cover a number of federal and state regulatory developments, including the U.S. Labor Department's new rules strengthening government contractors' obligations to prohibit employment discrimination against military veterans and disabled individuals, a New York City law expanding protection against pregnancy discrimination and a California law increasing the state's minimum wage. This edition also introduces a discussion of recent employment law trends in the European Union.
