December 15, 2020

By: Louis P. DiLorenzo

With the elections now in the rearview mirror, the inauguration of President-elect Biden and the convening of the new Congress in January, employers are determining how the pending changes in Washington, D.C. will impact their business. In this Employment Law Alliance program, the ELA panel will provide an overview of the expected Congressional and federal agency actions during the final weeks of the Trump Administration and what employers can expect during the Biden-Harris Administration. Both the long-term reversals in prior policies and regulations as well as the near term changes during the Lame Duck period before the January 20th inauguration will be discussed.

Topics to be Discussed:

  • Final actions by the Department of Labor and EEOC during the Lame Duck period
  • Reversal of the Trump Administration's Executive Orders, regulations and guidance
  • Impact of new administration on EEOC and its Republican Commissioners
  • New obligations that federal contractors may face including pay data collection
  • Planned changes to OSHA and likely Emergency Temporary Standard on COVID-19
  • Likely increases to the federal minimum wage
  • Expected changes to independent contractor classifications and join employer tests, including the impact on the Gig economy
  • Changes at NLRB, enacting PRO Act to make organizing easier and to expand power of labor organizations
  • Anticipated changes in employment-based immigration policy and regulations under the Biden Administration
