Bloomberg BNA spoke with Lieff Cabraser partner Rachel Geman for a Q&A on upcoming cases involving the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and anticipated employment law enforcement under President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration.
Taking a broad view, Ms. Geman calls up the Zen parable “We’ll See,” which speaks of the phenomenon of unintended consequences, when discussing future litigation matters involving labor and employment. “Some foresee that the EEOC will be relatively inactive by fiat but, on the plus side, that this will galvanize the private bar. We feel pretty energized already, but there is always, always, always more to do.”
Ms. Geman further discusses sexual orientation discrimination, pay equity, and joint employment with an eye toward 2017 and beyond. You can read the full Bloomberg BNA interview here.
