How The Biden Administration Could Enforce Labor Laws
U.S. labor attorneys expect the Biden administration will introduce labor laws and regulations similar to those under President Barack Obama.
REPORT FROM THE U.S. - As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office in January, the U.S. hotel industry can prepare for the likely changes to come under his administration.
As president, Biden will have the ability in short order to reshape the composition of the five-member National Labor Relations Board, said Travis Gemoets, partner at Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell. There's a vacancy now he will be able to fill with a like-minded candidate, and there will be another in August 2021.
"At that point, he'll have a three-to-two more liberal, progressive composition to the board," he said.
