John L. Knorek Featured Speaker At “Trumps 1st 100 Days And Beyond” Talk

With Republicans now in control of the White House and both houses of Congress, the Trump Administration and the 115th Congress are pressing forward with an aggressive public policy agenda. What does this agenda mean for Hawaii employers? Find out at this upcoming talk by John L. Knorek, a Director at Torkildson, Katz, Hetherington, Harris & Knorek Attorneys At Law.

Key issues of focus of Mr. Knorek’s talk will include:

  • Expected administrative and regulatory changes;
  • Employment cases to watch;
  • Hawaii State update; and
  • Predictions.

Mr. Knorek’s presentation will include potential changes to overtime regulations, changes to the NLRB and EEOC, and effects on pending litigation with the Justice Department and Supreme Court. This is a major opportunity for Hawaii employers to learn how their organizations, members and employees will be affected by these changes.

Recognized in 2016 as a "Top Rated Lawyer in Labor & Employment" law, Mr. Knorek focuses his practice on representing employers in employment and wrongful discharge law. He is a founding co-editor of the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce’s Desk Manual for Employers as well as its Model Employer Handbook.
