Professor David Sherwyn explores how the Trump administration might affect labor laws and regulations, especially in the hospitality industry. His report, titled, “The Effect of Labor Law Changes under the New Administration: Too Soon to Tell,” centers on topics such as joint employers, the fissuring of the hospitality industry, franchises, unions, and regulations within hospitality. The general consensus from the discussion seems to be that it is still too early to tell what changes will occur and how they will affect the industry.
Over the course of several sessions, the roundtable examined the continuing development of the joint-employer decision, possible changes in the NLRB, and the status of union activity with a new board and new administration. – David S. Sherwyn
The report was inspired by roundtable discussions with more than 30 participants from academia, law firms, industry, and unions. This summary was published in the Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations Report.
