Countdown to November: The Washington Outlook for HR Public Policy

2016 Employment Law & Legislative Conference

The American electorate will head to the ballot box in November to elect a new president and decide which party or parties will control the 115th Congress. Key workplace issues before Congress in this election season include efforts to amend the Affordable Care Act, new workplace flexibility options and initiatives to address pay equity, to name a few. The Obama administration is also trying to put the finishing touches on its workplace regulatory legacy with changes to the overtime regulations and new paid-leave requirements for federal contractors. How will these issues affect your workplace? This session will provide an up-to-date discussion of current congressional activity as well as federal regulatory and judicial activity.
