More Threats to Employers from Congress

By August 27, 2009Labor Unions

While most employers are concerned with the immediate threat posed by the Employee Free Choice Act in Congress, there is a long list of other threats facing job providers.

Workforce Management magazine provides a great overview of the spectrum of employment policy legislation pending in the 111th Congress. This article details proposals like the Healthy Families Act that would make job creation more difficult and expensive, WARN Act expansion which makes it harder for employers to retain jobs during times of economic down turn and proposals like the Paycheck Fairness Act that will expose employers to unlimited punitive damages for allegations of gender-based discrimination.

Worth a read.
