Playing the Trump Card: What’s New in Employment Law in 2017

Please join us on February 22nd for our first Employment Law Luncheon of the year as we discuss what you need to know and expect from employment law in 2017. Last year, employers faced a number of changes in the employment law landscape. While it is difficult to predict whether the new administration will be able to deliver on all of President Trump’s campaign promises, we can expect significant policy and enforcement changes in 2017.

Our topics will include:

  • Changes to the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan;
  • Evolving protections for LGBT employees;
  • The likely impact of Trump appointees to the National Labor Relations Board, and the impact it will have on Obama-era decisions;
  • The fate of the DOL’s new overtime rule; and
  • What “repeal and replacement” of the Affordable Care Act could mean for your organization.

And much more…

Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. The seminar will begin at 11:45 a.m. and end at 1:00 pm. As always, there is no charge for our seminar. We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, please contact Caitlin Bareis at [email protected].
