Attorney Amelia Holstrom will discuss recent developments and her predictions about what may happen at both the state and federal levels under the new Administration and what it could mean for employers.

Holstrom will talk about what is happening with the Affordable Care Act and steps Massachusetts may be taking while the issue is sorted out at the federal level; the potential for paid family leave both at the state and federal levels; and her predictions regarding trends in the enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission requirements, including the new EEO-1 requirements.

She will also address what employers should be watching for relative to medical marijuana and what an employer’s current legal rights are, and her predictions for labor relations developments under the new National Labor Relations Board.
