Farm Rule Put to Pasture

Pressure by American Farmers caused the Administration to abandon new child farm labor rules late yesterday. LegalBriefs brought these rules to your attention on Wednesday. After previously announcing the rules would be reworked, the U.S. Department of Labor said it would not pursue the regulations again for the duration of the Obama administration.

What are the lessons for employers in other industries?

Farm employers were vigilant and vocal. You, your industry and the business community need to do the same.

You and your ability to conduct your business are affected by decisions made in Washington, the state capital and courtrooms throughout the country. Changes to the rules you must follow are now happening at a staggering pace.

Take chare of your business and your workplace by promptly implementing new rules and influencing future rules that will surely follow.
