Summary of Projected Impacts of the Trump Administration for Employers

Lilly Hummel

Jackson Lewis, leading legal experts on labor law, summarized 45 ways in which the priorities and actions of President Trump and his administration are affecting employers in a recent posting. The summary covers a variety of topics including employee benefits, immigration, government contractors, wage and hour, labor, litigation and class actions, privacy, white collar and government enforcement, workplace safety and health and higher education. For example, Jackson Lewis notes that employers still face uncertainty about the new overtime rule from the Department of Labor. The injunction is still in effect, and the government’s final brief defending the rule is due on June 30, 2017. It is possible that the new Secretary of Labor may recommend a new overtime rule that lowers the salary threshold set by the Obama Administration.
