Park Avenue Presentations

2021 HR Law Update

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Dr. Jim Castagnera, Esq.


Webinar Description

Last year posed unique challenges for employers, and 2021 will provide no respite.  Employers will continue to deal with the pandemic and the changes it has brought to both physical and remote workplaces.  The change of administration means employers need to shift gears and brace themselves for the reversal of the Trump Administration’s pro-employer orientation. We guarantee the Biden Administration will have a pro-labor focus. Many Trump era Executive Orders will be revised or rescinded, and Biden Administration labor-friendly Executive Orders, regulations, and possibly legislation will be enacted.


Regulatory agencies such as the EEOC, the OFCCP, OSHA, NLRB, and DOL will be reinvigorated, beefing up their enforcement activities, which are likely to receive increased funding and staffing. At the state level, individual jurisdictions will continue to enact new labor and employment legislation.


Bottom line: employers will find themselves operating in a far less friendly regulatory environment.  Companies across the country will need to adopt and adapt new employee management strategies which reflect this new reality.  Now is the time to begin planning for the inevitable modifications in federal and state laws, regulations, and enforcement.  This begins by familiarizing yourself with the major changes in Executive Orders, laws and regulations that will be enacted and proposed in the new year.


Please join Dr. Jim Castagnera, employment law attorney as he discusses the important federal and state legislative and regulatory initiatives employers can expect to see in 2021 and offers guidance for developing new employment management strategies which address this new reality and the leveling of the employer and employee playing field that will result.
