EEAC's 2017 Federal Employment Policy Briefing Book

The last eight years have brought significant change to the federal rules and regulations that govern the employment relationship. While many of these developments have been relatively straightforward and non-controversial, others suffer from serious flaws, are overly burdensome, and are not likely to achieve meaningful results. A new political landscape and new leadership among key policymakers present an opportunity to take a fresh look at these recent policy changes.

EEAC has created a briefing book to summarize key employment policies enacted or revised during the Obama Administration, an overview the practical impact of each to the employer community, and references to background information that provides additional context for each issue.
