In the month since his inauguration, President Joe Biden has given HR professionals a lot to consider.
Biden spent his some of his first moments in the Oval Office revoking Trump-era orders and issuing new mandates that may set the tone of his administration. He ordered feds to review anti-discrimination regulations, with an emphasis on protections for LGBT workers, for example, and has since urged Congress to swiftly pass the Equality Act.
Biden's first moves come with little surprise. Not only did he outline his intent to minimize discrimination in employment and other areas in his Build Back Better plan, but experts also forecasted Biden would focus on such areas.
As the Biden presidency unfolds, employers can likely expect more changes. The president nominated Boston Mayor Marty Walsh for secretary of labor. Walsh, a former union president, said during his Senate confirmation hearing that he supports Biden's workplace priorities, including safety and equity.
Below, HR Dive collected the stories illustrating how Biden has changed the U.S. workplace in the first month of his presidency.
