Paul DeCamp Quoted in “Trump’s Labor Secretary Plays It Safe as Judgeship Talk Swirls”

Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report

Paul DeCamp, Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC office, was quoted in the Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report, in “Trump’s Labor Secretary Plays It Safe as Judgeship Talk Swirls,” by Ben Penn.

Following is an excerpt:

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta is keeping a low profile in this first year in office, possibly because he has his eye on another job.

There is widespread discussion that Acosta, a former United States Attorney and law school dean, is biding his time for a spot on the federal bench. …

“In a lot of ways, Secretary Acosta is the anti-Puzder,” Paul DeCamp, a DOL official in the George W. Bush administration, told Bloomberg Law. “Whereas Puzder would’ve been essentially a bull in a China shop, Secretary Acosta has shown himself to be extremely careful, thoughtful, and cautious.”

“There’s nothing disingenuous about that, but he is clearly conducting himself like somebody who may find himself in the future before a Senate confirmation proceeding, whether that’s for a judgeship or some other type of proceeding,” added DeCamp, who now represents management at Epstein Becker Green in Washington.
