Five individuals, including a consultant who provides diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) training to employers, have filed a lawsuit seeking a preliminary injunction against Florida’s “Stop WOKE” Act.
On April 22, 2022, Florida enacted so-called “anti-woke” legislation, amending the Florida Civil Rights Act and potentially limiting the ability of employers to include discussions of “implicit bias” or systemic racism in workplace training.
A California court held that AB 979 - designed to increase diversity on corporate boards - was unconstitutional. How will this decision affect IE&D legislation? And how can corporations lean into this trend, while remaining within the bounds of the law?
Due to the interconnectivity of today’s world, work often takes place in the digital space, where employees regularly use pictorial icons and images known as emojis and emoticons to express themselves.
Draft regulations would dramatically expand the liability exposure and obligations of employers and third-party vendors in California that use, sell, or administer employment-screening tools or services that use AI in decision-making.
