Charlotte Partner Weighs-In on Biden’s Pick to Head the Labor Department
In an interview with Business Insurance, David Klass discusses what employers might expect under President Biden’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Labor. On January 7, 2021, Biden nominated Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to be the next Secretary of Labor, and David noted that Walsh is a “consensus builder” who has a “history of working with multiple stakeholders.” He goes on to predict that Walsh will likely make the pandemic one of his top priorities with an expected COVID-19 emergency temporary standard to be issued by OSHA. David notes: “[t]he Biden administration and Mayor Walsh will have a road map for what they’re looking to include in such a standard, and I would expect that to be their No. 1 priority under a soon-to-be Secretary Walsh.”
