The First 100 Days: Employment Protections in the Biden-Harris Administration

1h 1m

Created on June 08, 2021





This substantive one-hour course, presented by employment and entertainment attorney Jeffrey Campolongo and employment attorney Vanessa McGrath, will take a closer look at the increased protections employees and independent contractors can expect in the Biden-Harris Administration. After a fiercely contentious, chaos-inducing, and at times, dystopian run up to the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden was sworn in as our 46th president on January 20, 2021. This program will open by examining the first 100 days of the administration, what is being done to implement sweeping policy changes, including greater protections for workers, unions, and independent contractors, and will explore the most likely changes that employment lawyers might encounter in the Biden-Harris Administration. Examples of issues to be discussed include the following:

  • Workplace Diversity and Discrimination Protections

  • National Paid Sick Leave

  • Increasing the Federal Minimum Wage To $15

  • Protecting and Strengthening Labor Unions

  • Eliminating Mandatory Arbitration Clauses, Non-Compete Clauses and No-Poaching Agreements

  • Ending Wage Theft and Worker Misclassification

  • Enforcing Prevailing Wages, Increasing Workplace Safety Measures and Protecting Undocumented Workers

Finally, this program will examine how these changes might impact employment practice and how employment attorneys can better serve their clients in the wake of these changes.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Predict changes to employment law during the Biden-Harris administration

  2. Review policy changes that have already been implemented

  3. Examine how these changes will impact employment practice
