On Aug. 3, an Obama-appointed federal judge in New York nullified key sections of the U.S. Department of Labor’s rules governing paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Following the court decision, on Sept. 11, the DOL revised its guidance that restricted paid leave during layoffs and furloughs, required employer consent to paid intermittent leave and required employees to provide documentation before taking leave. ABC General Counsel Maury Baskin will discuss how the revised FFCRA guidance impacts construction contractors and chapters.

In addition to discussing recent FFCRA updates, learn the latest on new and proposed federal rules dealing with independent contractors, joint employers, diversity training requirements for government contractors, the potential impact of the Supreme Court nominee and other election campaign issues affecting ABC members.


Maury Baskin serves as ABC’s general counsel and is a shareholder in the Washington, D.C., office of Littler Mendelson P.C., where he chairs Littler’s Construction Practice Group and co-chairs Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute. He is one of the chief legal advocates for the rights of employers on labor issues throughout the country, representing ABC and its member firms at every level of government, up to and including the U.S. Supreme Court.
