We are one year into President Trump’s administration and the Executive Branch has had a significant impact on the domestic agenda impacting employers across all industries.  The Department of Labor is ramping up with new appointments in the Wage Hour Division and OSHA, the National Labor Relations Board is fully staffed with 5 members, and the Supreme Court went back to work in October with 9 Justices. 

Almost immediately after January 20, the Administration implemented steps to deregulate federal Executive Orders and other rulemaking from the Obama Administration, including Presidential Executive Order on Buy American and Hire American impacting H-1B employees, modifying immigration regulations and threatening the status of DREAMERS, re-evaluating the overtime rule, rolling back protections for transgender workers, and withdrawing OSHA’s anti-retaliation rule.  At the Supreme Court, the Administration changed positions in key workplace cases including whether employers can have an arbitration agreement that restricts class actions, and relaxing the standard for finding joint employers between prime employers and contractors. 

At this legal panel briefing, DC SHRM’s Legislative Committee will discuss the practical impact that the Trump Administration has had and will continue to have for employers in the workplace.
