For better or worse, President Trump's first weeks in office are causing surprising and convincing changes for employers. His administrative orders, cabinet appointments, Supreme Court nominee and stance toward trade with foreign powers are inspirational to some and revolting to others. What's indisputable is that change is occurring that will affect employers and employees.

In this early assessment, employment attorney Melissa Fleischer reviews the sometimes-surprising impact of Trump's first weeks in office and projects which coming changes will be of greatest concern to those who hire, fire, comply with regulations and manage business in our swiftly changing world.

The pace of change is so rapid employers risk missing the forest for the trees. Take this opportunity to orient yourself and adjust your planning to adapt to the new world of President Trump.
