As was promised late last week, POTUS 45 signed another executive order, this time to revoke two orders and a section a third order issued by President Obama. All were related to employment rules.
Conservatives are celebrating this action believing it removes “job killing” regulations. Those who believe safeguards are important are not celebrating. In my opinion, revoking the previous orders will do nothing to save jobs, but will give Federally funded employers more latitude to make life difficult for employees.
For anyone interested in the details, here are the three Obama orders.
- Executive Order 13673 of July 31, 2014 – Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces
- Executive Order 13683 of December 11, 2014- Amendments to Executive Orders 11030, 13653, and 13673
- Executive Order 13738 of August 23, 2016 – Amendment to Executive Order 13673
Executive Order posted March 27,2017.
