The Wave of Change:
Labor & Employment Regulation in the Trump Era
Thursday, August 17, 2:00PM EDT

Don't miss the first installment of our brand new webinar series, “The Wave of Change: Labor & Employment Regulation in the Trump Era" on August 17 at 2:00 PM EDT. We will be presenting a new webinar every other month. Covering both financial and human resources topics, these webinars will provide the information and tips necessary for you and your business to succeed in the industry.

President Trump recently signed an executive order that requires two regulations to be rescinded for every new regulation that is enacted. Two areas that are receiving a lot of attention due to this policy are labor and employment laws. Join Adriane Harrison, Director of Human Relations at PIA, as she provides updates on what has happened and previews what may happen in labor and employment law and policy during the next few years.
