Do We Need to Update Employees When Employment Laws Change?

Question: Do we need to tell employees when employment laws change?

Answer: Possibly. As the employer, you need to stay up to date on legal changes that affect your organization, and your leadership team, managers, human resources, and payroll departments should be kept aware of any new legal requirements or rights that will apply to them or their employees.

On the other hand, non-managerial employees only need to be informed about changes to the law when notice is legally required. If there’s no requirement, whether to update employees is up to you. Still, making employees aware of their rights is usually a best practice.

This Q&A does not constitute legal advice and does not address state or local law.
