Employment and labor attorney David Dubberly was a featured speaker at the South Carolina Bar’s Recent Development in Employment and Labor Law seminar on May 12, 2017. Dubberly addressed recent and expected changes at federal agencies with jurisdiction over employment, labor, and workplace safety and health issues.
According to Dubberly, much of employment and labor law is driven by decisions and rules issued by the executive branch, specifically the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division and Occupational Safety and Health Administration; the National Labor Relations Board; and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
“During the previous administration, these agencies made it harder for employers to enforce disciplinary rules and easier for unions to organize. Under new leadership, the agencies are expected to cut back on burdensome requirements for employers and to take a more collaborative approach to enforcement.”
