Election 2020 Special Report


A special post-election report published Thursday, Nov. 5, by Seyfarth Shaw LLC, addresses top-of-mind issues to watch as the election results continue to take shape. 

While final results will have to be certified, Seyfarth's Policy Matters Newsletter said it "appears that we face four more years of divided government, although now the administration will likely be under control of Mr. Biden and the Democrats."

The newsletter focuses on some scenarios that may be relevant to employers in a Biden administration, with some discussion of what the Trump administration has done, or would likely do, in the somewhat unlikely case that he prevails.

Topics addressed include:

  • What is going to happen to the Senate?
  • How the makeup of crucial Federal Employment Agencies may look
  • What about OSHA? The fate of a critical agency during a pandemic
  • Could Bernie Sanders be named Secretary of Labor?
  • Immigration: Executive Orders, policy differences and business consequences
  • Health Care: Affordable Care Act, COVID and the economy
  • Big Tech and the shifting antitrust landscape
  • Independent contractors
  • Legislative agenda
