  2. Marijuana legalization continued its spread to include medical and/or recreational use in four out of five states.
  3. The final rule on overtime exemptions was at long-last published and goes into effect January 1, 2020.
  4. The Supreme Court heard arguments in October on three cases regarding LGBTQI+ protections in the workplace.
  5. Family and medical leave became a hot issue at the local level, with several states and cities guaranteeing paid or unpaid time off for a variety of reasons.
