Meeting Description:

OSHA, Employment Law, and MSHA Impacts of the Upcoming Presidential Election

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Eric J. Conn, Kara M. Maciel, and Nick W. Scala

In just a couple of weeks, we will have the opportunity to enter the voting booth, and cast a ballot to elect the next President of the United States.  The platforms and proposed polices of the candidates are more divergent than I can ever remember.  The outcome of this election will significantly impact this country’s future with respect to healthcare, military actions, economic policy, and of course, workplace challenges, like union organizing, and occupational safety and health regulation and enforcement.  This webinar will discuss the public positions taken by both candidates about labor employment subjects and safety and health enforcement and rulemaking, and the likely impacts depending on which candidate takes the White House.

Date: Tue, Oct 25, 2016
Time: 01:00 PM EDT
Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes
Host(s): Eric J. Conn, Kara M. Maciel, and Nick W. Scala
