Colorado Supreme Court

The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled on Nieto v. Clark’s Market, Inc. Employers must pay employees for all earned but unused vacation upon termination of employment. Employers do not need to offer Paid Vacation Time, but once they do, any vacation time earned becomes “wages” under Colorado law.

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that, even with no evidence the supervisor himself was gay, calling a male employee gay and making sexually explicit, derogatory remarks, and physically assaulting the employee, was still same-sex sexual harassment.

COVID-19 State Updates



The COVID-19 specific posting requirements for Philadelphia have expired and are no longer required. The COVID-19 poster may be removed by employers in this city.



Starting this month, some employers in the casino, hospitality, stadium, and travel industries will need to offer their former employees who were laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19 the opportunity to return to work.


New York

New York has lifted their remaining COVID-19 restrictions for most industries. COVID-19 rules are still in effect for large scale indoor venues and several public sectors.
