Weekly catch-up

Daily Trumpdates. Our new president has had a busy week, and I've been providing "Daily Trumpdates" of actions taken that are of interest to employers. Here are links to all the Trumpdates from this week:

MONDAY: Regulatory freeze, "listening session" with unions, Puzder status

TUESDAY: Good meeting with union reps

WEDNESDAY (twofer): The 4 known SCOTUS contenders

Victoria Lipnic named as acting chair of EEOC

THURSDAY (twofer): DOL requests extension of time in overtime case

More on Trump. In case you want something more in-depth than my daily blurbs, please Hot Dog Man.flickrCC.JeleneMorrischeck out this excellent Inauguration Day client bulletin by Anjanette Cabrera and Stephen Stecker discussing what employers can expect in virtually every area of labor and employment law. And Jeanette Phelan is keeping us current on President Trump's actions on immigration.

The Winter 2017 edition of Retailer is out! Our feature article, by Bob Ortbals, is on schedule protection laws. We also have the latest charge-filing statistics from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and blurbs and links to items of interest to retail employers.

It's HEERE! H-1B filing season is upon us. Will Krasnow has a readable recap of the rules, the exceptions, and the deadlines -- both internal and external.

And, at last, the exciting conclusion to Diary of a Pregnant Lawyer! In her "Third Blogmester" installment on FOCUS, our women's leadership blog, Mallory Schneider Ricci discusses the joys and sorrows of trying to practice law and look presentable while nine months' pregnant, as well as the return to work after maternity leave. (I wonder if Baby Margot will grow up to be as funny as her mama is.)
