We have a new president and Republican administration in the White House, which means big changes for employers in the coming years. In fact, if history proves correct, you can expect a sharp drop, or even rollback, of federal employment laws and regulations. Think deregulation will ease your compliance burden? Quite the opposite.
When federal activity slows, states and cities step in to fill the gaps. We’re already seeing this with minimum wage, paid sick leave, anti-discrimination laws and other legislation designed to protect employees. These changes often lead to more labor law posters — and more complexity — for employers.
