California Streamin’. Gov. Jerry Brown has either signed into law or allowed to take effect a torrent of new employment laws that will take effect January 1. Nestor Barrero of our LA-Century City Office has a summary of the significant ones, with recommendations for employers with operations there. Check it out!

Travel Ban 3 has been blocked. First, a federal court in Hawaii blocked President Trump’s September 24 travel ban Proclamation, which replaced the travel ban Executive Order that he issued on March 6 (“Travel Ban 2”).

Trump’s travel ban scores one with the SCOTUS. This week, in a victory for the Trump Administration, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed as moot one of the two pending challenges to the March 6 travel ban issued by the Administration and vacated the lower court decision striking down the ban. (That March 6 travel ban has since been replaced by a September 24 travel ban.) Will ...

Must-see ConstangyTV! The September edition of ConstangyTV’s “Close-Up on Workplace Law” is on YouTube, and you will not want to miss it. Host Leigh Tyson talks with Jon Yarbrough about social media in the workplace, including social media horror stories and what employers can do about them, the restrictions that have been imposed on social media policies by the National Labor Relations Board, and how that might change now that we have a Republican majority on the Board. To save you a long, grueling trip to our YouTube site, here it is:

Trump’s 8 zillionth* travel ban: what employers need to know. President Trumpissued a new travel ban “proclamation” on Sunday, and the excellent Will Krasnow of our Boston Office has read it and explains it all for us in this Immigration Dispatch.

Supreme Court agrees to review "travel ban" cases and partially stays injunctions on the ban pending a final decision. The Trump Administration won a partial victory this week when the U.S. Supreme Court decided that portions of the Hot Dog Man.flickrCC.JeleneMorrispreliminary injunctions against the "travel ban" issued in March should be stayed. What that means is that the travel ban is now in effect for foreign ...

You may have heard by now that not one, but two, federal courts have struck Hot Dog Man.flickrCC.JeleneMorrisdown President Trump's second attempt at a travel ban Executive Order. As always, Will Krasnow and Jeanette Phelan from our Immigration Practice Group have the story, including links to the two court decisions. Last we heard, President Trump is done with rewrites -- he plans to take the battle to the Supreme ...

President Trump has issued his new and improved "travel ban" Executive Order, which reduces the list of "banned" countries from the original seven to six (Iraq is now off the list), provides more of a rationale for banning foreign nationals from the six countries, makes exceptions Hot Dog Man.flickrCC.JeleneMorrisfor permanent legal residents and others, and otherwise addresses some of the issues that caused so many ...

Alex Acosta's confirmation hearing is scheduled to take place that day. Mr. Acosta is President Trump's nominee for Secretary of Labor, and is expected to have relatively smooth sailing. On the other hand, is there anything that has been "smooth" about the President's first months in ...

The employment law week in Trumpland started out a little slow, but now we're back in business.

Acosta looking good for confirmation as Secretary of Labor. In contrast to nominee Andrew Puzder, the outlook appears good for his successor nominee Alexander Acosta. Mr. Acosta seems to have bipartisan support in the Senate, and has even been endorsed by the International Union of ...

Yesterday, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denied the Trump Administration's motion to stay the temporary restraining order issued by a federal judge in Seattle. This means that the TRO, which blocks the temporary travel ban from taking effect, will remain in place. The Administration may seek review by all of the judges on the Ninth Circuit or by the U.S. Supreme ...

*EDITOR'S NOTE: This "daily" stuff has now officially become "more or less -- maybe once a week, anyway."

For background on the immigration issue, please see this bulletin and this follow-up, both by Will Krasnow and Jeanette Phelan of our Immigration Practice Group. The oral argument before a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will take place by ...
