  • Moving away from enforcement to compliance focus
  • Opinion letters are back to help clarify how to comply with law
  • Several key roles are still waiting to be filled
    • Head of Wage and Hours Division for DOL
    • EEOC – Needs 2 more Commissioners
  • DOL Salary Rule – new rule not likely before 1/2019
  • EEOC expanding “sex” to include LGBT discrimination?
  • New EEO-1 Rule to include salary data on hold indefinitely
  • NLRB – All 5 members in place
    • Proposed staff cuts
    • Moving to attack Obama-era decisions
  • #MeToo
    • Senate bill to end forced arbitration of sexual harassment Act
