      Employment & Antitrust Law & Immigration Issues under the Trump Administration

      Thursday, October 19, 8 AM

      How will the Trump Department of Justice deal with antitrust concerns including price fixing, the sharing of wage and benefits data, and "poaching" employees between competitors? We will also discuss immigration enforcement and compliance as the Trump administration rolls out its "America First" agenda, and the increasing "us" versus "them" dynamic prevalent among international corporations doing business in the U.S. This program will introduce best practices to limit division and maximize teamwork within multi-cultural organizations under the Trump administration.
