Even if Republicans maintain a majority in the Senate, the U.S. workplace is likely to experience some changes with Joe Biden in the Oval Office, according to an article Monday in Politico.
The article predicts that the Biden administration will step up worker safety guidelines and enforcement with regard to how employers work to protect their employees from COVID-19 — something that has not been focused on under President Trump. Biden also is likely to work with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to ramp up penalties for violators, the media outlet noted.
Americans also are expected to see Biden reverse several Trump executive orders, including those banning diversity training in the federal government and restricting employment-based visas. The President-elect also has expressed a commitment to pass a measure hiking the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.
