Podcast: Employment Policies in the Trump Administration

Donald TrumpIn this Verrill Voices podcast, labor and employment attorneys Tawny Alvarez and Richard Moon discuss recent administrative and legislative developments, how they affect employers generally. More specifically, they discuss the current position in which the Department of Justice and the EEOC are taking separate and distinct positions on the issue of whether Title VII covers sexual orientation discrimination, highlighting a Second Circuit case that has brought the issue to the forefront. In addition to sexual orientation and gender discrimination policies, the stalled increase in the overtime exemption wage and President Trump's recent direction on affirmative action policies are also discussed.

If you have any questions on how these developments may affect your business, please contact Tawny Alvarez, Richard Moon, or another member of Verrill Dana's Labor & Employment Group.
