Employment Law Developments 2017 and Beyond!
It's shaping up to be a landmark year for changes affecting both employers and employees. Many new laws and regulations sponsored by the Obama administration recently were enacted or will take effect in January 2017. Will they be rolled back? We will find out after January 20, 2017 when Donald Trump becomes the 45th President and benefits from Republican control of both Houses of Congress in its 115th Session. It is anticipated that the new administration will enact significant measures to rebalance the rights and protections of employees with the rights and obligations of employers. In addition, President-elect Trump will quickly seek to fill Judge Scalia's Supreme Court position, along with 103 Federal District Court and Appellate Court judicial vacancies.
