Wolters Kluwer white paper analyzes labor and employment issues in the first six months of the Trump Administration

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced a new white paper, "The Trump Administration at six months: Labor and employment," examining impacts on labor and employment law thus far in 2017, and looking ahead at upcoming events that will affect employees and employers across the country.

The white paper explores recent events and movements within the Department of Labor, the Supreme Court and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), as well as actions taken by the Trump administration that have significant implications for labor and employment policy.

"Labor and employment is being impacted on several fronts: from the appointment of a new justice to the Supreme Court, to the Department of Labor's new leadership under Alex Acosta, to the Trump Administration's moves around immigration and LGBT rights," said Chris Carr, Labor & Employment Law Portfolio Director at Wolters Kluwer. "This white paper will help legal professionals to take stock of the changes that have taken place so far this year."

Highlights of the paper include analyses of the following topics:

  • Neil Gorsuch's confirmation as Supreme Court justice
  • Alex Acosta's appointment as the new Secretary of Labor
  • Leadership at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Course correction at the National Labor Relations Board
  • The Trump administration's legal battles over immigration and LGBT rights
  • Paid leave for new parents

The paper is authored by a team of labor and employment experts at Wolters Kluwer, including Ronald Miller, J.D.; Pamela Wolf, J.D.; Lisa Milam-Perez, J.D.; Lorene D. Park, J.D.; Kathleen Kapusta, J.D.; and Joy P. Waltemath, J.D.

"As labor and employment policy continues to develop under this administration, our team at Wolters Kluwer will continue to look ahead at future actions in order to help professionals stay ahead of potential impacts," said Pamela Wolf, J.D., Senior Labor and Employment Law Analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.
