This blog and all articles by Lunaria are meant to shed light on important legislation that might impact workplace D&I, but is not legal advice and should not be used in place of legal advice.

I turn to legislation to understand my legal obligations as an employer, how my employees are protected, and if I consider this protection enough for my company’s most important assets.
