Wolters Kluwer's expert provides insight for legal professionals on the rapidly evolving legal landscape around labor and employment.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the release of a new brief on the evolution of federal labor and employment laws addressing discrimination and harassment. Authored by Wolters Kluwer's senior employment law analyst Lorene D. Park, the brief is Wolters Kluwer's latest analysis on labor and employment law based on sex, age, race, religion, national origin, immigration status, LGBTQ status, military service, and more.

"Discrimination and harassment in the workplace - and the federal laws associated with it - is an increasingly apparent concern in today's society," said Park, who has served for ten years as a senior analyst and editor for Wolters Kluwer's digital content on labor and employment law. "This brief will educate our customers as they navigate the complexities of regulation around the labor and employment landscape."

Additional topics covered in this brief include:
