2-1 protects employees who express breast milk at work.
2-2 sets a minimum call-in pay rate guaranteeing 4 hours work or 4 hours wage for workers called in to work during unscheduled shifts including shifts less than 4 hrs to ensure workers are being paid fairly for being called in odten last minute. To do that for 1 or 2 hrs work is often not worth it.
2-3 prevents employers from deducting non-tax money from an employees paycheck for a 3rd party without permission or a court order to make sure workers dont get ripped off.
2-4 extends privacy protections to worker information possessed by an employer to limit them from giving out your information without your permission.
2-5 increases rewards for whistleblowers who aid in successful prosecutions of corrupt businesses.

3-1 allows employers instead of posting those dumb posters that no one ever reads on a back wall somewhere for infinity to instead give physical copies to its workers, maintain a web portal where the same information is posted, and provide updates. This is good because speech and property rights are important and requiring someone to permanently display a government propaganda poster on their physical wall is intrusive and also no one reads them.
3-2 protects employee parking lots from intrusive searches.

4 bans workplace violence intended to stop interstate commerce.

Oops. Forgot to specify I meant section III. The part about the posters. I'm ok with the posters coming down if you have them on your website, but facts about labor laws should always be available to people at all times, not just when they first get hired. a. and c. make it really easy for an employer to breeze through the "labor laws" section of employee orientation, since this law would allow them to hide the facts from clueless employees.
