Littler's Workplace Policy Institute® (WPI™) examines key labor and employment law developments in the Biden Administration and provide insights into what employers can expect through the end of 2021 into the coming year.
Eight months into the Biden Administration, a series of executive orders, rulemaking activity, and legislative efforts have signaled an intent to dramatically shift labor and employment policies in ways that are concerning for businesses still reeling from the pandemic. More change is coming in the fall, as recent pro-labor appointees take control of the federal agencies regulating the workplace.
In this presentation, we will examine the workplace policy agenda that the Biden Administration has begun to pursue, identifying a variety of topics that may affect employers in the months and years to come. These include anticipated changes at the US Department of Labor, NLRB, and EEOC, impacting such issues as joint employment, independent contractors, employee handbooks, union organizing, minimum wage, workplace safety, affirmative action, and government contracts. The latest developments regarding the PRO Act, COVID, and other pending legislation will also be discussed.
