Regulatory Roundup for March 2022: Your Guide to the Latest Changes

Please note the list below is not intended to be comprehensive. Our team is constantly monitoring for updates that may impact organizations across the country.

In this edition of Regulatory Roundup, your guide to the world of compliance, we look at changes across the nation and in two states.

Federal updates

The U.S. Department of Labor has released Field Assistance Bulletin No. 2022-02 to shed light on employees’ protections under various laws enforced by the department’s Wage and Hour Division, including:

  • FLSA
  • FMLA
  • visa workers
  • federal contractors

As a reminder, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) tentatively scheduled the 2021 EEO-1 Component data collection to start April 12, with a May 17 reporting deadline. Private-sector employers — and federal contractors who meet certain criteria — must submit an annual EEO-1 form. The EEOC also discontinued Type 6 Reports for some employers.


The state’s 2022 COVID-19 Supplemental Paid Sick Leave FAQs have been updated to provide guidance on:

  • who is covered
  • when leave may be taken
  • record-keeping
  • and more


Effective June 9, House Bill 1794 requires employers to pay employees for fees charged by the employee’s financial institution that were caused by a paycheck returned for nonsufficient funds. Employees must present the dishonored paycheck to their employer within 30 days of receipt to qualify for reimbursement. Employers won’t be liable for reimbursement if they provide written confirmation from their financial institution showing the return of the paycheck for nonsufficient funds was due to an error.
