The Trump Administration recently published its sixth semi-annual regulatory agenda covering regulatory actions that federal agencies, including the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), plan to take during the next 12 months, along with a projected timeline as to when the action is expected to be taken.

Although the primary focus of the Trump Administration since taking office has been on deregulatory activity rather than introducing new regulations, the latest agenda does contain a few new initiatives, including the first significant rulemaking by the EEOC in several years.

NT Lakis attorneys have prepared an update on selected items of interest to employers contained in the regulatory agendas of the Department of Labor (DOL), the EEOC, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and the immigration enforcement components of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well as a regulatory action involving the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Council.

If agencies stick to their published timelines, the next year will bring a number of significant revisions related to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other laws enforced by DOL’s Wage and Hour Division, in addition to the new proposals expected from the EEOC.

We have also prepared a chart provides a digest of the regulatory items. The complete government-wide semi-annual regulatory agenda is available online.
