Paul DeCamp Quoted in “Trump Won Key Union Workers in 2016. Will Scalia as Labor Secretary Change That for 2020?”PBS NewsHour July 26, 2019
Paul DeCamp, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC office, was quoted in PBS NewsHour, in “Trump Won Key Union Workers in 2016. Will Scalia as Labor Secretary Change That for 2020?” by Gretchen Frazee.
Following is an excerpt:
Much of the Labor Department’s work is focused on writing detailed regulations that companies must follow, then enforcing those rules when businesses do not comply.
As labor secretary, Scalia could determine how, and to what extent, rules protecting workers are enforced. He could also move quickly to finalize regulations currently in limbo.
“When there are clearer standards, it is easier to avoid violations and easier to enforce the rules,” said Paul DeCamp, a lawyer at Epstein Becker Green and former administrator of the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division.
