With any new administration, some level of change is expected in federal policy enforcement. In the first year of the current administration, in the labor and employment world we've seen an overhaul of agency leadership, White House directives to federal agencies enjoining them from enforcing their own rules, and competing federal agencies taking opposing positions in the same litigation. More change has been promised to come. And while federal enforcement may be seen as taking a step back, states have become significantly more active in stepping up employee rights including the Oregon Legislature. This past fall, the newly configured US Supreme Court considered several cases with significant labor and employment implications. This CLE seminar will review labor and employment updates in federal enforcement, new legislation passed by the Oregon State Legislature, significant new cases, and anticipated developments on the horizon. Heidi Brown, Portland City Attorney's Office and Aruna A. Masih, Bennett, Hartman, Morris & Kaplan LLP are the panelists for this must-attend class for all employment law attorneys.
