CIHLER roundtable anticipates changes to labor and employment relations under Trump administration

CIHLER roundtable on Trump Administration

Prominent lawyers, professors, corporate managers, and union leaders gathered for a roundtable on Monday, April 24, to discuss the direction of hospitality, labor, and employment relations under President Donald Trump's administration.

David Sherwyn, roundtable chair and director of the Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations, highlighted the purpose of the discussion in the context of the Hotel School's background.

"As the leading hotel school program in the world and as a part of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, we, along with our partner in this endeavor, the ILR School, feel that it is imperative for us to bring people from labor, management, and government together to provide a forum where we can discuss ideas and to create a better legislative agenda, a better work environment, and a better industry," he said.

The talk was divided into four topics covering employment, changes in leadership of the National Labor Relations Board, the issues of discrimination, arbitration, wage, and hour laws, and a student question-and-answer section.
