New Jersey Law Journal

Author: Laura A. Stutz

Laura Stutz (Of Counsel-Florham Park, NJ) authored “Promises Made to Be Delivered: Expansion of Protections and Enforcement Under Biden Administration” for the August 18, 2021, edition of the New Jersey Law Journal. Laura focuses on how regulatory actions and leadership changes at key employment-related federal agencies, such as the Department of Labor (DOL), indicate President Biden intends to make good on his promises to improve employment protections for workers. Her article outlines Biden’s regulatory freeze directing agencies such as the DOL and Equal Employment Opportunity Commissions to give his administration and appointees final review over any new legislation, and notes that he appointed leadership at key employment agencies who share his views on enforcing workplace laws. Laura concludes, “Employers should anticipate continued pro-labor, pro-union efforts and brace themselves for significant changes in employment laws, regulations and enforcement.”
