Under the Trump administration, many employers remain uncertain as to what the workplace will look like under the 45th President of the United States. While the questions about how will the new regime change will impact labor and employment law is yet to be seen in the first quarter of 2017, it is an advantage for employers to consider the potential implications early on. A newly-constituted National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) may reverse or narrow some of the decisions issued by the NLRB under the Obama administration.
The labor landscape will likely see significant changes during the course of a Trump presidency. Speculation about how he will influence labor law will run rampant throughout his early presidency. Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and seasoned professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will keep the audience apprised with the recent issues and latest developments involving the NLRB, as well as its future under the Trump administration and its expected impact on the workplace.
