"More pro-employee laws on the way?"
"...more pro-employee legislation could become law, and some warn that employers can expect stricter enforcement of existing laws by federal agencies." 
"There are at least 27 different pieces of legislation proposing changes to federal law affecting just about every aspect of the employer-employee relationship," said C. R. Wright a partner with the law firm Fisher & Phillips L.L.P. in Atlanta.
Valerie J. Hoffman, a partner with law firm Seyfarth Shaw L.L.P. in Chicago, said she expects the federal agencies to take "a vigorous approach to employment issues that will continue to put the pressure on employers nationwide."
"I absolutely think that employer enforcement is going to kick up a notch" during the next year, said Martha J. Zackin, of counsel with law firm Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky & Popeo P.C. in Boston.  "These agencies now have bigger budgets and will use those budgets to enforce what past administrations didn't necessarily focus on."
