Federal Contractors Quarterly Briefing: The Latest On OFCCP Rules, EEO-1 Pay Equity Reporting, Overtime And Minimum Wage, And More
|Date / Time:
This has been a year like no other, and the election of Donald J. Trump as the President of the United States represents a significant departure from the status quo. What will the 2016 election mean for the future of workplace laws, regulations and for the federal agencies charged with enforcing them?
At this early stage of the Trump Administration transition, some of the key changes already are becoming clear. Once sworn into office, President Trump is likely to rescind many, if not all, of President Obama’s Executive Orders that focused on employment initiatives and impacted federal contractors.
In addition to rescinding President Obama’s Executive Orders, Trump has stated that he wants to streamline the regulations that impact employers so expect his appointees to the Department of Labor (DOL) and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to begin dismantling any regulations that they believe are unnecessary as quickly as possible.
This is all but confirmed with the nomination of the new Secretary of Labor, Andy Puzder, who has been a vocal and aggressive opponent of increasing the minimum wage and of expanding overtime coverage. Predictions are that Puzder will be eager to cut regulations that he and Trump believe impede job creation.
Join us for the first quarterly briefing of 2017 designed exclusively for federal contractors. Washington DC insiders David Fortney and Nita Beecher will provide the latest compliance update and offer practical solutions for protecting your organization from costly legal liabilities related to OFCCP regulations, new overtime and minimum wage requirements, EEO-1 pay equity reporting obligations, and much more.
