Legislative and Regulatory Outlook: An Update on Labor and Employment Developments in Congress and the Federal Agencies

Live Event
April 11, 2012
Washington D.C.
Event/Organization: 
Littler Mendelson

In this election year, what can employers expect from Capitol Hill and from the regulatory agencies? With a sharply divided Congress, the Obama Administration has turned to the agencies to seek dramatic changes to labor and employment policy. This in-depth discussion will cover the labor and employment legislative, regulatory and enforcement outlook for 2012 and what these changes mean for employers, including:

  • National Labor Relations Board: The National Labor Relations Board has embarked on an aggressive agenda that could fundamentally alter labor law. With the controversial recess appointments to the Board, even more sweeping changes could lie ahead.
  • Department of Labor: New rulemaking and new enforcement tools means greater risks for employers.
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: 2011 marked a record-high number of EEO charges. With new rulemaking and guidance on the horizon and a focus on systemic litigation, what can employers expect in 2012?
