The 2016 Presidential election was arguably the most contentious, unpredictable and politically polarizing race in this nation's history. In the end, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president on January 20, 2017, with a Republican majority in both Houses of Congress. What will this mean for the employer community? How will the course of labor and employment law be changed, and how can you help your company navigate these changes?

In this briefing, we examine the workplace policy agenda that President-elect Trump promised to pursue once in office. While we cannot predict the future, we can identify a variety of topics that may affect employers in the new Trump era.  

Topics include:

  • Federal agenda impact: What can we expect from President-elect Trump, the future of the overtime exemption changes, and the other developments within the DOL, EEOC, NLRB, etc.?
  • Trends from 2016: A review of the most relevant case law developments highlighting significant 2016 federal and state court decisions and critical trends that should impact employers in 2017
  • Focus on immigration: How will an increased effort on compliance and worksite enforcement, implementation of expanded E-Verify use and stricter visa controls affect your company’s workforce?
  • Suggested employee handbook updates: How will new laws and court decisions impact your current employee handbook in 2017?
