The Pendulum Swings: Notable Employment Law Changes to Watch for Under the Biden-Harris Administration

February 11, 2021

After only a few days in the White House, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have already made notable changes to the leadership of federal agencies that administer the nation’s labor and employment laws.  

This is an early signal that President Biden intends to fulfill campaign promises to move workplace law, and its enforcement, in a decidedly employee-friendly direction.  Still to come could be changes to union organizing laws and procedures, a boost to the federal minimum wage, and changes to “joint employment” and independent contractors.
