Winds of Change in the Obama Era
~ written by David T. Ball, Labor & Employment Committee
Just four days before the end of the Bush Administration, new Family and Medical Leave Act regulations took effect. Just one month into the Obama Administration, the COBRA subsidy was passed. Then the Employee Free Choice Act was reintroduced. Now a bill has been introduced that would rescind the new FMLA regulations. In this time of rapid change, the Columbus Bar’s Labor & Employment Committee is pleased to offer “Winds of Change: Labor and Employment in the Obama Era.”
Matt Austin of Mason Law Firm will kick off this 3-hour CLE by examining key labor and employment legislation likely to become law in the coming year, with an up-to-the-minute update on EFCA’s status. Priscilla Hapner, Law Offices of Priscilla Hapner, will provide an update on recent regulatory changes and sketch the regulatory horizon with particular emphasis on what types of regulations can be expected from the EEOC. David Ball of Schottenstein, Zox & Dunn will conclude the program with a discussion of recent Supreme Court labor and employment decisions and a preview of the Court’s docket in this area.
