A show that comes to mind when I think about employment law is The Office. The Office aired for the first time on NBC in March of 2005. The show lasted a total of nine seasons and the final episode aired in May of 2013. I think it would be fair to say that if The Office came out at this point in time, as opposed to back in 2005, it would be extremely problematic and networks, especially NBC, would most likely not feel comfortable putting the show on air.
As we move into 2021, many states have passed and are planning on passing new laws relating to employment law. Most of these laws are going to affect each entire state, while some are limited to certain cities. While many of these new laws are being put into place because of the pandemic, there are still plenty that not related. Below are some employment and labor laws that will affect Georgia, Maine, Nevada, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington, and New York.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was created in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The EEOC enforces federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination.
