  1. a law requiring small employers to provide up to 12 weeks of unpaid parental leave;
  2. a law restricting the types of salary questions employers can ask applicants;
  3. and a law restricting employers’ abilities to conduct background checks or inquire about prior convictions for potential new employees.
