EEO-1 Resurrected: California May Be First State to Revive the EEOC’s Pay Data Reporting Form

by Erin M. Connell and Necia Hobbes | September.02.2020

In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and a nationwide push towards greater equality, transparency and accountability, the California legislature this week passed a bill (SB 973) that would establish at the state level the equivalent of the EEOC’s discontinued EEO-1 pay data collection form.  If signed by Governor Newsom, SB 973 would require that starting March 31, 2021 every California employer with 100 or more employees who files a federal EEO-1 report must annually submit a pay data report to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) that discloses: (1) ...

美國州立法與監管業務

States, not Congress, are enacting and enforcing the policies that affect if and how companies can legally operate their businesses in a particular state. State-level issues are especially challenging for businesses. Instead of one set of laws and regulations to consider at the federal level, there are potentially 50 different sets of regulations and legislation at the state level—passed by regulatory bodies and legislatures with their own unique procedures and timelines.  The stakes could not be higher: as one New York Times commenter noted, “a tweet-length change to a law could spell the ...

美國最高法院

Nowhere are these characteristics more prominent than in the cases we litigate before the U.S. Supreme Court. In a recent high-profile report on the Supreme Court bar, Reuters found that a small group of 66 lawyers—out of 17,000 who petitioned the Court during nearly a decade—were more than six times as likely to have their clients’ cases heard by the Court. Reuters identified three Orrick partners as members of this “elite cadre” that “giv[es] their clients a disproportionate chance to influence the law of the land.” Our deep bench includes nearly a dozen former Supreme Court clerks. Our ...

We have won awards and recognition from publications such as the Financial Times, which has recognized Orrick among North America’s top ten most innovative law firms for several years. In 2018 and 2019, for instance, FT recognized our work to secure access to justice for veterans. In that case, we persuaded the Federal Circuit to find that “Blue Water Navy” veterans who served during the Vietnam War are entitled to receive benefits for health issues linked to Agent Orange exposure. That victory opened the door for nearly 100,000 veterans to secure benefits after decades of government ...

The Madden Cloud is Lifting

by Robert Loeb and Howard S. Altarescu | September.23.2020

In 2015, the Second Circuit’s decision in Madden v. Midland Funding, LLC, raised doubts about whether banks could transfer, sell, or assign their interests in consumer debt without triggering the enforcement of state usury laws. Recent OCC and FDIC regulations have sought to eliminate that uncertainty.

Troubled Transactions

This increase corresponds directly to the increase in the variety and complexity of the types of bonds issued, as well as the financing structures used and the sources of repayment and security for the bonds. Other contributing factors include the increasing complexity of tax and other laws pursuant to which bonds are issued, the requirements for disclosure of information, the duties of issuers, trustees, underwriters and other participants after, as well as before, issuance of the bonds, and the greatly increased enforcement attention to the municipal bond sector from the IRS and the SEC.

Welfare Plans

We have witnessed the enactment of the preexisting condition, nondiscrimination, and the privacy rules under HIPAA, to name just a few. Additionally, employers and their plans have become subject to the Newborns' and Mothers' Health Protection Act, the Mental Health Parity Act, and the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act. Other laws that have applied to employer welfare plans for some time, such as the continuation coverage rules of COBRA and the rules applying to cafeteria and flex plans, have undergone dramatic changes in just the last year or two.
