It is a new day for the federal labor and employment agenda with a Democratic President, an 83-seat Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, and 60 Democratic votes in the Senate—a filibuster-proof majority. More than 40 significant labor and employment bills have been introduced in this Congress. There have been hearings on important labor and employment issues in this session, and the stage is being set for more to come. At the same time, the labor enforcement agencies are gearing up for a very busy 2010.
- What to watch for from the Department of Labor, including the Wage & Hour Division; Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs; Occupational Safety & Health Administration; and Solicitor's Office.
- The impact of unemployment rates on mandates for employers.
- The content and potential effect of interest group reports outside of Capitol Hill on labor and employment issues.
- The role of regulatory agencies to accomplish labor issues through new enforcement, regulations, and formal and informal policy pronouncements.
