Transition To A New (Work) Day: An Initial Look at Workplace Change in the Obama Era

As the results of the 2008 presidential election fade into memory and the meaning of the election for employers emerges, our goal at Littler is to inform you as to what is happening in Washington, educate you as to what it means for your company, and prepare you to handle change.  In this paper, we start the process by taking an initial look at what may be on the horizon for employers and set the stage for our monitoring of what is to come. This Littler Report covers topics such as the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), the legislative agenda on civil rights including removing damage caps under Title VII, changes to statutes of limitations and recognition of gay rights, emergence of family/life balance initiatives on the federal level, increased agency funding for OSHA and changes to executive compensation and employee benefit structures.
