Philly SHRM Webinar

During this one-hour seminar, we will update participants on the anticipated effects of the 2018 midterm elections on both federal and Pennsylvania employment laws.  We will discuss the impact that the change in the majority control of the House of Representatives may have on federal agencies, such as the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Department of Labor.  We will also discuss potential legislative initiatives that the new Democrat-controlled House may advance.  Finally, we will discuss the impact of the Pennsylvania elections on statewide labor and employment laws.
