Labor and Employment Developments in President Obama's First 100 Days

April 30, 2009 • Webinar

Please join a panel of Crowell & Moring's experienced Labor & Employment attorneys for a webinar in which they share their observations on how the federal Labor and Employment law landscape has changed through the first 100 days of the Obama administration. The program will feature the panelists' views on the Supreme Court's current docket, the Executive Orders issued in late January, as well as recent and proposed legislation in light of the Obama administration.

Our lawyers will engage in a lively, informative discussion of, among other topics:

  • The Employee Free Choice Act and what employers should be doing now to prepare for changes that are likely to come,
  • The recent Executive Orders suggesting that the Obama administration will continue to look for ways to advance the agenda of organized labor through changes in federal procurement policy,
  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (also called the Stimulus Act) and, in particular, what actions employers should take immediately to ensure compliance with the tricky temporary COBRA subsidy requirements for involuntarily terminated employees,
  • How the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act impacts employers and ways to avoid or minimize liability for past and future compensation decisions, and
  • Labor and employment law issues pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, including the Court's recent decision in Pyett.
