The legal field is one that is constantly changing. For law firms, that means looking for new ways to serve clients and finding ways to make their practice more effective. One concept that has been growing in the industry is “law new.” This term can be hard to pin down and can mean different things for every firm. However, there are some key aspects that all law new practices should have in common.
New York law: A new year, a new set of laws
With 2024 upon us, there are a number of major changes that have taken effect in the state of New York. This includes a higher minimum wage in the City and the rest of the state, as well as legislation that has been focused on workers’ rights, child care and more.
This bill would require certain third-party food delivery services to obtain a license to operate in the City. It would also repeal subchapter 22 of chapter 5 of title 20 of the Administrative Code that contains existing laws relating to third-party food delivery services.
In the United States, it is common to have an idea for a new policy from a senator or other member of Congress. This could be based on a constituent’s need, an organization calling for a new law or something else entirely. This is called the legislative proposal or “bill” and it’s the starting point for any new law.
Once a bill is drafted, it will go through the process of being approved by both houses of Congress and then becoming a public law known as an Act. Once the Act is passed by both chambers, it will then be signed into law by the President.
New York City law: A new year, a new way to get help
A new set of rules for the City’s worker-assistance programs took effect on Jan. 1. The new rules include a consolidation of actions where at least two cases are related and could result in a joint judgment that would cover all parties. The rules also require certain employers to provide information to their employees about federal and state student loan forgiveness programs. They will also need to keep records about those programs. In addition, the new rules add a penalty schedule for violations of the City’s ban on keeping and selling any force-fed products and will require motion picture theaters to offer open captioning. They will also add a requirement that all construction labor providers must be licensed with the City.
