Charting a New Course: Labor and Employment Under the Biden Administration

A Multipart Series



Please join Faegre Drinker for “Charting a New Course: Labor and Employment Under the Biden Administration,” a fast-paced series of webinars exploring the latest developments in labor and employment law as well as legislative and regulatory priorities moving forward. Our presenters will zero in on the new administration, the hopeful wind-down of a once-in-a-century pandemic and the radically different world of work before us, and will equip you with critical insights to help field whatever the next four years hold.

June 30: Restrictive Covenant Trends – Will the Ties Still Bind?

The laws addressing noncompetes and other employee restrictions are in flux. Over the last few years, numerous states — and now the District of Columbia — have passed new laws limiting (and in some cases effectively eliminating) the use of such restrictions and setting traps for the unwary in the form of notice and other procedural requirements. On top of this, there is new activity around so-called “no poach” agreements at both the state and federal level. And remote work is only exacerbating the trend. Come hear members of our employee mobility and restrictive covenants team discuss how to navigate these developments.

Previous Sessions

Session 1: Labor Law Under the Biden Administration — Fasten Your Seat Belts!

(Available on Demand)

The first year of the Biden administration will be chock-full of labor law changes (and challenges) for employers. Our series kickoff will open with an up-to-date summary of 2021 developments. Then, we will look into the crystal ball for other likely labor law changes looming on the horizon, and provide practical tips on how union and nonunion employers can adapt to satisfy them.

Session 2: Leave Programs and Disability Accommodation – How Can We Help?

(Available on Demand)

Employer policies and practices for leave and time off benefits and disability accommodations have evolved at a rapid pace, due to the extraordinary circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic and a growing morass of state and local requirements. And with the Biden administration expected to bring greater employee protections in these areas, the compliance challenges will only multiply. Join us for a discussion on recent and potential developments and practical approaches to keep your programs current.

Session 3: Employment Litigation Trends — The Pandemic and Beyond

(Available on Demand)

In 2020, the pandemic not only upended our personal lives, it transformed how we did business — and employment litigation was no exception. At the same time, the crisis spawned demands for employment-related legal reforms, ranging from immunity for workplace liability to more stringent standards for workplace safety. But how many of those reforms became law? And is virtual litigation here to stay? Our panelists will discuss what changed in 2020 and what is business as usual. We will also provide predictions about the post-pandemic employment litigation world and how litigation trends could be further impacted by the enforcement priorities of the Biden administration.
