Well, it seems the unlikely has happened and Georgia voters turned the formerly-red state solid blue this week and with it, flipped the US Senate to democratic control. With the White House, US House of Representatives and now the US Senate all being in democratic control, what can we expect to see coming out of Washington over the first two years of a Biden administration? First off, we have to look at the labor front where we would expect to see the most wide-spread changes from the current policies. Undoubtedly, there will be a strong push for passage of the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act), which will dramatically rewrite America’s labor laws. The PRO Act had already passed the US House last February by a mostly party line vote and would certainly clear the lower chamber again. Among other items, it would codify the BFI joint employer standard, codify the “ABC test” to determine employee vs independent contractor status, and also ban right to work laws, which currently exist in 28 states across the country. Further, it would reinstate the “ambush” election rule for union representation elections and allow a “card check” election process in addition to a host of other issues, such as “ban the box”, salary history bans and resurrecting the Obama-era overtime rule. Beyond these issues, we can also expect to see an effort to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, further attempts to establish predictive scheduling rules at the national level as well as a federal prohibition on mandatory arbitration and nondisclosure agreements. The questions of DC and Puerto Rico statehood, each of which would bring in two additional US Senators may also surface again much more seriously than in past years.
