As elections approach, President Biden’s administration is pushing various labor regulations.
Any time a presidential administration is facing an election year, it tends to ramp up its regulatory activity in an attempt to get as much of the current president’s agenda on the books as possible. This is true whether it is facing reelection, as President Biden currently is, or if it is a lame duck administration. Biden’s team is no exception. At the time of this writing, we know that the administration has been very active not only in the labor space, but also in environmental regulations and tobacco regulation. For this article, we’ll focus on the administration’s labor agenda.
