Many employers are rejoicing that Donald Trump is President-Elect. Many are convinced that the employer-unfriendly decisions of the past eight years at the National Labor Relations Board will be reversed, including its narrow focus on social media. In addition, it is likely the Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will be replaced and that we may see its attention shift, including paring back the new EEO-1 reporting obligations, if not eliminating them altogether.
As for the Department of Labor, we can be sure that there will be many changes, but as it stands now, the new overtime regulations will continue to be implemented December 1. Keep a close eye on this blog for changes in the employer arena as a result of the election.
