Fisher Phillips Attorneys Preview Congress’, Administration’s Priorities Post-Midterm Elections

11.7.18

In the Law360 article titled “Top 10 Employer Takeaways From Midterm Election Results,” Portland partner Richard R. Meneghello and Sacramento of counsel Benjamin M. Ebbink offer their take on what the midterm election results mean for employers going forward. The list considers possible priorities relevant to labor and employment law for the U.S. Congress and the Trump administration now that the Democratic Party will be in the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. Types of legislation expected (immigration, worker-friendly bills in the House); possible Trump-distraction by the Democrats in the House; another attempt, perhaps in the lame-duck session, to repeal the Affordable Care Act; judicial nominations ramping up in the U.S. Senate; and how the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Janus regarding mandatory union dues may affect elections are all explored.
