This week on our special podcast series, Employers and the New Administration, employers await action from two agencies: the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (“OFCCP”) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”).

Employers Prepare for Action from the Biden OFCCP and OSHA

Shortly after taking office, President Biden named a new OFCCP director, former Obama-era appointee Jenny Yang. While there has been much speculation about the new direction of the agency, action has been limited so far. Employers are also watching closely for OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard. Just this week, Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh announced that the materials should be on hold until they are “updated to reflect the latest scientific analysis of the state of the disease.” The Department of Labor indicated it won't review the standard's regulatory text but will instead focus on the standard's analysis of the disease.

How can businesses prepare for changes to come at these two agencies? Guest attorney Bob O’Hara discusses the regulatory actions employers should anticipate. Attorney David Garland leads the conversation.

Employers and the New Administration is a special podcast series from Employment Law This Week®, with analysis of the Biden administration’s first 100 days. Special podcast episodes air every other #WorkforceWednesday. Subscribe on your preferred podcast platform.
