Law new refers to any type of legal practice that has a unique approach to the field. It can include anything from working with underserved communities to creating entirely new strategies for delivering services. It can also include using technology and focusing on process.
While this concept can be hard to define, it is one that lawyers need to keep an eye on in the future. It’s a growing area that can provide many benefits to firms.
Aside from being a great way to boost revenue and offer clients new ways of reaching out, this is an area that can allow firms to explore a range of different legal issues. Whether it’s dealing with criminal cases or assisting people in finding a new career path, it can help firms to be innovative and open-minded.
New laws are being passed in a number of different states, including minimum wage increases, animal protections and police accountability measures. They’re taking effect across the country this Saturday, so here are some of the most important ones to look out for.
Abortion restrictions in New Hampshire
A new law in the state of New Hampshire will prohibit most abortions after 24 weeks, with exceptions for health or life. This is a move that conservative lawmakers are calling a step toward restricting reproductive rights but which some Democratic lawmakers are calling an effort to protect women.
Police reform in Illinois and Oregon
This month, several states passed laws to address issues related to police. Among them were a new measure in Illinois that prohibits the use of force by police officers in situations where children are present, and an Oregon law that requires police to take into account the mental and physical health of any person they are encountering while on duty.
Those are just a few of the many new laws that took effect in 2022, so it’s important to know what each one means. You can find them by using the New Laws Search page.
Licensing of third-party food delivery services
This bill would require all third-party food delivery services to obtain a license. The license must be renewed annually, and it can be revoked by the department if two of more violations are committed by a company in a given year.
The law also prohibits third-party food delivery companies from charging restaurants and other food service establishments for telephone orders that do not result in a transaction during the call. It would also prohibit the charge if the order was not processed within three minutes of being placed, as well as any charges for unauthorized food items or oversized or large items.
The law also makes it illegal to sever or cut a hotel service worker’s pay or benefits in the event of a change in control, such as the sale or bankruptcy of a hotel. It would also require hotels to notify workers about the new rules and provide them with severance pay.
