The outcome of the 2012 election provides new energy to the HR issues that will be before the 113th Congress in 2013 and the focus of the second term Obama Presidency. The implications of the workplace regulatory agenda and HR public policy initiatives the President and Congress will put forward will have a real impact on the workplace. Key issues of focus include proposals on: deficit reduction, tax reform, and perhaps, even immigration reform. The decisions that will be made to bring down the federal deficit and reform the tax code could have a direct impact on employer-sponsored health care, pension and fringe benefit plans. The presentation will discuss legislative issues in these areas as well as provide an up-to-date discussion on current federal regulatory activity
