GT L&E Blog Global Developments In Labor & Employment Law

About Us

As the U.S. labor market continues to evolve over the coming decades, adapting to three major trends will be vital for employers. First, changing workforce demographics, size and focus will become a key issue in the provision of professional services – particularly as the baby boom generation continues to age. Second, increasing globalization means that national borders will become a greater challenge for companies to manage, in terms of both their immigration and international commerce requirements. Lastly, the rapid pace of technological change will continue to have a tremendous impact on both the workforce and the workplace.
