A New Year, a New Era Begins in DC: The Washington Outlook for HR Public Policy

The American electorate cast their votes in November, providing the continuation of Republican control of the 115th Congress and the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

President Trump and Republican leaders of Congress have promised to move forward with a very aggressive 100 Day agenda, with many issues of importance to the HR profession being at the forefront of this agenda. Key issues of focus include proposals to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, initiatives to reform the tax code, efforts on interior immigration enforcement including worksite enforcement and proposals to expand paid leave and workplace flexibility. How will these issues affect employers and employees in your organization, and how can you best engage and prepare for the year ahead? This session will provide an up-to-date discussion of current congressional activity as well as federal regulatory and judicial activity.
