In this video, BLR's Patricia Trainor, J.D., SPHR, Senior Managing Editor, Human Resources, explains where Barack Obama and Mitt Romney stand on issues related to HR and employment law, such as pending 'right to know' regulations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regarding employee classification; affirmative action, and the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) reach regarding issues such as social media policies and employee handbooks. Trainor also explains how the presidential election results could impact employers in these areas.
Editor’s note: Since this video was recorded, the NLRB has issued additional guidance on employee handbooks.
