New DOL Secretary Sworn In
Last week, the Senate approved the nomination of Thomas Perez to head the United States Department of Labor. There had been previous concerns voiced about his involvement in a False Claims Act case in Minnesota and his responsiveness to a congressional subpoena.
He was sworn in Tuesday. Perez is expected to have an aggressive, enforcement-focused agenda that could propose a number of new regulations. More information on the new agency chief is available on the DOL website through this link.
