Program Description
The Obama Administration has already appointed key Agency personnel and made dramatic legislative changes that favor organized labor and employees. More are planned over the next few months. Employers need to understand how these changes are likely to impact their workforce and determine how best to adapt and react to the changes.

We have scheduled this briefing for February 2010. However, depending on legislative or other developments, we reserve the right to move this briefing to an earlier date, in place of one already scheduled or change it to a seminar of a half or full day. Current topics include:

1. Status of health care reform and what it means for employers.

2. The Employee Free Choice Act -- Labor Law Reform by the Democrats and the AFL-CIO.

3. The new members of the National Labor Relations Board and the expected agenda.

4. One year later -- key court decisions interpreting The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

5. Status of other legislation and Executive Orders.
