Steven M. Swirsky, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the firm's New York office, was quoted in SHRM.org, in “Court Permanently Bars New Persuader Rule,” by Allen Smith.

Following is an excerpt:

Yet under the new persuader rule, attorneys were permitted to review a draft of a speech or handbook policy and deem it lawful or unlawful without having to report that, said Steven Swirsky, an attorney with Epstein Becker Green in New York City. The new rule created a "morass of uncertainty" as far as what was considered "indirect persuasion" that had to be reported, he said, noting that the new rule was "far different from what Congress approved and the DOL said was lawful since 1959."
