Dinner Meeting: Crowne Plaza in King of Prussia

The focus of this presentation will be on evaluating the impact of key developments and hot topics emanating from the Biden Administration in wage and hour law, including those taking place at or through the U.S. Department of Labor, and of labor-related issues bubbling up at the National Labor Relations Board. We’ll consider and compare the most recent activities of the Biden Administration to those under the Trump Administration. We’ll also address some insight and thoughts about the impact of the mid-term elections and what the future holds in the employment regulatory realm. As always, I’ll do my best as your “fortune teller” to offer predictions and to provide guidance to help you navigate the world of employment law in 2023 and beyond. Below is a brief list of some of the areas we’ll explore:

  1. How Strong Has The Biden Administration’s Department Of Labor Been And Does It Resemble The Obama DOL?
    1. Has the new DOL leadership been successful? Where has its focus been and has it enhanced enforcement efforts or compliance education? Has the Biden DOL halted all progress for employers?
    2. The last 15+ years have been banner years for wage and hour claims. Will that continue?
  2. Has The Labor Movement Under The Most Pro-Labor President Ever Returned To Prominence?
    1. Has President Biden delivered on “promises” to labor unions? Has the NLRB changed course and reverted back to an approach more in line with the Obama Administration?
    2. Given the prior decline in power and success of labor unions, the Biden NLRB was expected to shift its energy to enhance union organizing and even focus more on non-union workplaces – has that happened. Have we returned to the “gotcha game” of hammering employers for purported unlawful policy implementation and subsequent employee discipline based upon those policies?
    3. What happened to the PRO (Protecting the Right to Organize) Act?
  3. Will Our Employment World Become More Or Less Complicated?
    1. During the Obama Administration, employers faced numerous impediments to successful employee relations strategies yet saw a more relaxed regulatory environment under the Trump Administration – what has been the experience under the Biden Administration?
    2. What does the near future hold for the proliferation of claims against employers?
