Employment Law Developments – Columbus

Bob Dunlevey of Taft Law, a board-certified specialist in Labor and Employment Law

With the most recent election of the 116th Congress, the congressional balance has tipped causing Washington to refocus more on employer related issues. Pensions, paid leaves, minimum wage, overtime exemptions, LGBT rights, pay equality, right-to-work, prevailing wage, harassment and predictable work scheduling are just some of the items Washington will address. If Washington “drops the ball,” from the States perspective, the local governments will certainly attempt to pass similar legislation. Seven additional Statehouses are Democrat controlled, and although federal agencies, such as the DOL, EEOC, and NLRB, are led with Republican appointed personnel, these agencies’ field staff are more energetic in enacting rules and enforcing their laws than ever before and they will be supported by the House oversight.

During this session, Bob Dunlevey, seasoned employment law attorney, will let you know what employers can expect from Washington and how to effectively prepare and cope with these employer related changes.
