Join David S. Fortney at the Employment Counsel Network where he will present Blue House, Red Senate: What Employers Should be Watching.

After the 116th Congress convened on January 3 with Democrats firmly in control of the House of Representatives and Republicans having a larger majority in the Senate, it seemed very unlikely that any new legislation directly affecting workplace issues would be passed. Anything the House approved was likely to die in the Senate. Nevertheless, our speaker says employers and their counsel shouldn’t lose sight of the ongoing political and legislative developments that are having a direct impression on the workplace. In this session, he will consider:

  •  Major changes that occurred during the first two years of Trump’s administration, including the long‐term impact of confirming more than

80 federal judges, including two U.S. Supreme Court justices;

  •  What employers can expect to see from Washington over the next 6 to 12 months;
  •  How key federal agencies like the DOL and the NLRB-fully funded for the 2019 fiscal year-have continued to go about their work;
