Employment Law Under the Trump Administration – Possibilities and Expectations

April 19, 2017

The end of the Obama administration saw a renewed emphasis on Executive Orders and regulations, which meant employers had to relearn and figure out how to comply with numerous changes while trying to run their businesses. Many of these orders and regulations went into effect while others were stopped by the court system via injunctions and currently remain in legal limbo. All indications, including recent Executive Orders and appointments, signify that a policy shift and enforcement changes will be made during the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

Please join us for a presentation of headline issues that will be affecting businesses of all sizes under the new administration. We will provide insights into the new administration’s potential enforcement policies, what is likely to stay the same and what may change, new policy regulations and potential legislation to prepare you to handle employee matters related to wage and hour issues, EEOC reporting requirements, NLRB’s impact on social media, union organizing, whistleblowers, workplace investigations and more. Those changes will also include at least one new Supreme Court Justice, dozens of judges on other federal courts, a new Secretary of Labor and new leadership at many other federal agencies.

Dykema labor and employment lawyers Abad Lopez and Ray Bissmeyer will discuss:

    • Prominent cases and regulations from 2016
    • Potential impact based on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch
    • Potential impact based on Department of Labor Nominee Alexander Acosta
    • Activity of the DOL, EEOC, NLRB and others
